Friday, December 6th, 2013

Article source: FT Architects

The project consists of two buildings, an archery hall and a boxing club, standing a few hundred meters apart on the grounds of Kogakuin University in west Tokyo.

The formal rituals of Kyudo (Japanese archery) and the very physical nature of boxing may appear worlds apart. However, surprisingly, the two built facilities share a number of commonalities.

Giving Warmth to the Building Skin-The World of Gio Ponti, Father of Modern Italian Design in Tokoname, Japan by TORAFU ARCHITECTS

Friday, December 6th, 2013

Article source: TORAFU ARCHITECTS

We designed the space for an exhibition “Giving Warmth to the Building Skin-The World of Gio Ponti, Father of Modern Italian Design” at INAX MUSEUMS in the city of pottery, Tokoname, Aichi prefecture, Even though Ponti is a modernist, he explores architectural surfaces, integrating hand craft work into machine production in order to communicate “feeling of skin,” such as its texture and warmth. Four themes: “Interior wall,” “Window” “Floor” and “Exterior wall” were keys to the interpretation of the exhibition. By making excellence use of co-located Monozukuri Koubou laboratory crafting technique, we have attempted to duplicate Ponti’s tile work.

Kurosaki Tully’s Coffee, a chain shop, provides some new challenges to increase the number of shops.

Since this shop is directly connected to the local city station, there are various customers. With this situation, we proposed a special suggestion. That was, to create an identity in total and to purposely design separate customers’ seats.

A small pavilion “roof and mashrooms” in Kyoto, Japan by SANAA

Thursday, November 7th, 2013

Article source: SANAA

A small pavilion on the campus of Kyoto University of Art and Design, born from a collaboration between architect Ryue Nishizawa and design office nendo. The location: a steep hill face covered in luxurious vegetation.

On a clear day, you can almost count the 36 crests of the hills that line Kyoto’s eastern edge. The adjacent area is earmarked for a new grove of Japanese plum trees, and their fragrant early spring blossoms will only add to an already beautiful site. Nishizawa used a single roof to incorporate these elements into the pavilion’s design.
