Housing Complex in Niigata, Japan by TAKUYAHOSOKAI + Hirose Architects

Tuesday, October 15th, 2013

Article source: TAKUYAHOSOKAI

Noh, a traditional, Japanese performance art, serves as the main inspiration for the architectural concept. The performance of Noh is heavily reliant upon the use of delicately carved masks. Although at first these masks may appear to present a neutral expression they are formed in such a way as to convey a broad emotional spectrum.

DEVICE #9 in Oyumino, Chiba, Japan by N MAEDA ATELIER

Saturday, October 5th, 2013

Article source: N MAEDA ATELIER

DEVICE #9 is our idea of the simplest architectural format.
 The format starts with a completely empty box. The only “rules” are to implant four GARDENs serving as devices. The only other thing we have done is to place facilities and objects indispensable for living.
 To metaphorize, the empty box is a flat steel sheet, and the four GARDENs are magnets positioned below the steel sheet.

CELLULOID JAM in YOKOHAMA, KANAGAWA, JAPAN by N MAEDA ATELIER

Friday, October 4th, 2013

Article source: N MAEDA ATELIER

Imagine a site you might picture, when letting your mind wonder back in time: damp soil forms a soft ground, catching your footsteps, ancient, weather-beaten stairs, that have been used in earlier times as an earthen path, a lovely old retaining wall and carefully cherished plants.

Peanuts in Hiroshima, Japan by UID Architects

Friday, September 27th, 2013

Article source: UID Architects

One circle is the completed form because it has strong centripetal characteristics. However, overlapping two circles changes the form that has various vectors and is not centripetal. It is that it becomes the space that does not prescribe the domain as various places to stay, and it is connected to the environment gently. I expect that babies bring up sensitivity in this architecture because “Peanut” is not completed form by the same token and is a plant bearing fruit in soil.

Dear Ginza bldg in Tokyo, Japan by amano design office

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

Article source: amano design office

The client is a developer company. It purchased a long-sought after lot in Ginza, and planned to build a commercial  office building.

The building site is on the Ginza 1-chome Gaslight Street, which is one street behind the Ginza Central Street.

It is on the back side of the Mizuho Bank and Pola Ginza buildings on the Central Street. The atmosphere is quite different from the gorgeous Central Street, and the site is on an empty street which is often seen behind the street with large-sized buildings.
Attracting as many people as possible into such a street is our task. The client desired the building to be a gorgeous existence.

Light Walls House in Toyokawa, Japan by mA-style architects

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

Article source: mA-style architects

The site is in a shady location where a two-story neighboring house closely stands on the south side, and even the shade and shadow on the path intensify the impression of darkness. Therefore, the design intended to create a space with uniformly distributed light by adjusting the way of letting daylight in, and the way of directing the light. By taking into consideration the space for the residents, the functions for living, and the relationship with the surrounding environment, creation of a diversity and richness in the house was intended by controlling the concept of light.
