A district town: Which must be an excellence tool for the public and for all its participants. Its architecture connects gardens, squares, covered pedestrian streets, gathering spaces and induce new urban compartments. Designed as a city fragment, not only as a sport equipment, our stadium is an attractor: innovative and generator of vitality. It is expanding in order to better reach users requirements: proximity, diversity, accessibility. It became a district, naturally sustainable and ecological.

Our stadium concept, unlike other conventional stadiums, is an elliptical spiral which is gradually unrolling and forming the built space with a slope of 2%, serving the 80 000 places (with a visibility angle that grows from 20% in the bottom part to 45% at the top part of the gardens). This disposition aims to offer to the public a perfect visibility from all the gardens. The slope also facilitates the access in the building for people with motor deficiencies.

Article source: Edward Suzuki Associates

This is a vacation home expected to become a permanent house in the future. Located about an hour’s car ride away from downtown Tokyo, it is locatedin the sea resort of Hayama in the Shonan region, adjacent to the more well known, old city of Kamakura.Sited overlooking the sea on the south, the design intent was to capture as much of the scenic panorama and to bring it into the house. Behind the house on the north is a hill clad with wild bamboos. Sandwiched in between the richness of the sea and that of the hill, the design was to open the house as much as was possible to the natural outdoors and to become a part of it.

House in Sayo, Japan by Fujiwarramuro Architects

Friday, March 29th, 2013

Article source: Fujiwarramuro Architects

A narrow space threads through the center of this house, expanding and shrinking, curving and meandering. This part of the house morphs and transforms to become a space for relaxation, study, reading, or teatime. We built a small room in the middle of this space. As the width of these branches changes, the purpose of this room, along with its relationship with the surrounding space, transforms along with it.

Coupled House in Tokyo, Japan by Naoi Architecture & Design Office

Wednesday, March 13th, 2013

Article source: Naoi Architecture & Design Office

This project involved rebuilding a single plot with an existing wooden, one-storey detached house located in a quiet residential neighborhood. As many of the other buildings in the area had also been recently refurbished, we wanted to preserve the scale of the house and the midcentury vintage and slightly anachronistic character of the neighborhood in a new, updated form.

ROKU Edogawa in Tokyo, Japan by masatomo_kojima_auds

Sunday, March 10th, 2013

Article source: masatomo_kojima_auds

This project is a unit-based intervention for tenants re-occupying existing buildings. The market for this intervention is mainly young customers visiting a new cafeteria. Certain spatial flexibility was required for other activities such as live concerts and shows. The design of the space had to be adjustable and controllable in order to fit in several project sites and within different existing building conditions. The main focus of the project is to invent the system comprised of basic units forming the whole cafeteria, which could be further developed as several design options by transforming its shape and adjusting to its surroundings.

Toge in Tokyo, Japan by Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture + Design

Saturday, March 9th, 2013

Article source: Emmanuelle Moureaux Architecture + Design

Toge (Japanese for thorn) is a modular product. Each “thorn” gives the viewer the impression of a sharp and stiff object, but these modules can in fact be freely combined to create a soft, pliable and standalone space. At DESIGNTIDE TOKYO 2011, Emmanuelle arranged five hundred of these Toge modules in 15 different colors to form a wedding dress. This conceptual piece was an exercise in contradictory impressions and sensations – solid and stiff but soft and pliable, menacing yet gentle.
