FLAMINGO in Koenji, Japan by N Maeda Atelier

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Article source: Norisada Maeda

FLAMINGO is a pair of small architectures each only having a built area of 20 m2, rising in a boisterous city environment between a national highway and an elevated railway. A small building plot means that the interests regarding the space are inevitably drawn up vertically, that is, toward the cross-sectional design.

Fontana in Numazu, Japan by N Maeda Atelier

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Article source: Norisada Maeda

Cut through air. 
Italian painter Lucio Fontana had left works in which he would just rip up blank canvases with palette knives.

 The implication of it is that the act of ripping leads to an ex-post discovery of a situation where 
‘tensile force is exerted upon the canvas surface’ which was up to then not visible to the eye.

PICNIC in YOKOHAMA,JAPAN by N Maeda Atelier

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

Article source: Norisada Maeda 

The architecture of PICNIC consists of 3 roof surfaced areas, that respond to each other in a parallel correlation to create a striped pattern.By doing so, the architecture results in constructive parts with roofs, that build an inside, the room itself. Those parts without roofing create an outside, the garden.

Plastic Moon in Tokyo, Japan by N Maeda Atelier

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

Article source: Norisada Maeda 

For this project a moulding form coins the shape of space. According to this positive form, every space in the building alongside with its scenery is being created as the negative counterpart to it. Moulding forms are usually being filled with liquid metal in order to shape a certain kind of part or product.

TANGO in Nagoya, Japan by N Maeda Atelier

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

Article source: Norisada Maeda 

This is a quest for how to intentionally generate communication between private space and public space. The space configuration is simple, five “rings” randomly embedded in the cross-sectional deign between the walls on either side.  The use for the rings is primarily appropriated to private rooms such as bedroom and nursery, and the space remaining after positioning the rings turns out to be the lounge, vaulted great room, and bath. The rings are positioned away from each other, so the outside world and the actions of the dweller flow through.

Alice in Tokyo, Japan by N MAEDA ATELIER

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

Article source: Norisada Maeda

The plot for ALICE is an extremely long rectangle, 3.8 m wide and 22 m deep. It is situated in the middle of a bustling shopping district that would seem completely unsatisfactory for a personal home. The client requested a “resort” here. With a pool, lush trees, and a blue sky above. 
In order to conceptualize this “resort”, I decided to use two contradicting methods at the same time, to “sever” the architecture from the commotion of the surroundings, and to boldly “connect” it thereto.

BORZOI in Katsuura, Japan by N MAEDA ATELIER

Saturday, June 22nd, 2013

Article source: Norisada Maeda

Surfing is a very  important part of my life. Surfing is not a mere sport or enjoyment, it is a philosophy that teaches you how infinitesimal you are. The instant this insignificant speck becomes one with that great wave which has been repeating itself for billions of years, your universe is changed forever. No respect is too great for those who defy death to ride the 60-foot waves, unrecompensed. 
Then there is “tube riding”, the technique of entering a curling wave. An instant of perfect bliss.
