THEN? in Shizuoka, Japan by N Maeda Atelier

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Article source: Norisada Maeda

It was the one that “I wanted to prepare “Plate” that undertook grand scenery (mountain level) in front of the site” this stood in land and it had entered my body personally first.In it, it hoped even in the construction that would remain inevitably and it was hoped to “Plate” (landscape) to be buried in construct.
Do not do anything.

WEB in Morioka, Japan by N Maeda Atelier

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Article source: Norisada Maeda

WEB is made of very simple rules. Instead of the common method of taking a predetermined rectangular planar form and working out a puzzle how to arrange the rooms in a well-behaved manner, we take one large cuboid (white) and violently thrust into it five small cuboid boxes (exposed concrete) of different sizes and directions. Externally, it appears to have many protrusions, but the concept of WEB is to live in that space full of protrusions, as it is.

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.

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.
