Article source: Fumihiko Sano/studio PHENOMENON

This is the salon and the showroom by Maruwakaya – the company which produces “monozukuri” (which means a craftsmanship or art of design and manufacturing) that links traditional crafts to Contemporary art.

The counter made from Japanese cedar is employed as the center of the room; also, we designed the room by applying only the lintels, the sills, and the pillars.

House with Podocarpus in Osaka, Japan by MIFUNE DESIGN STUDIO

Saturday, June 7th, 2014

Article source: MIFUNE DESIGN STUDIO

There has been a symbolic podocarpus tree in the premises since the old days. It used to be a little away from the human space and was not seen from the room in a daily life. For this new construction due to deterioration, the tree was left where it was to strengthen the relation between human and the tree by building a new position and new traffic line. By creating minimum surrounding with new round fence for the tree, form and existence of the tree are maximized.

Nagaoka City Hall “Aore” in Niigata, Japan by Kengo Kuma and Associates

Saturday, June 7th, 2014

Article source: Kengo Kuma and Associates

With the growth of cities and their scale, public buildings of 20th Century were likely to be driven away to the suburbs, often as isolated concrete boxes in parking lots. We wanted to reverse this flow with Nagaoka Aore. We moved the city hall back to the center of the town and revived a real “heart of town,” which is located in a walking distance from anywhere, working along with people’s everyday life.

Skyward House in Uenohara, Yamanashi, Japan by acaa

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

Article source: acaa

Houses built on a highland overlooking mountains in the south. While each housing unit is sufficiently large for a single woman, specific parts inside are compact, thus creating both a feeling of security and a sense of openness. More specifically, two opposite kinds of space coexist in each housing unit. The first kind is the open “exterior room” with a wide opening, whereas the second type is the closed “interior room” with no window facing outside.
