Article source: Akinari Tanaka+POI+Nawakenji-M+Lapin

This is the project that the client returned to the birthplace after the retirement and rebuilt an old house. He requested sunny one-storied house with good ventilation. But there was a problem that an erstwhile quiet green residential area was changed into densely built-up area, and moreover neighbor’s concrete block wall surrounded his flagpole shape site. And there was a sense of being oppressed.

Woods of Net in Ninotaira, Japan by Tezuka Architects + TIS & PARTNERS

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Article source: Tezuka Architects + TIS & PARTNERS

This is a permanent pavilion for a net artist, Toshiko Horiuchi Macadam. The artist knitted the net entirely by hands, which is designed for children to crow in, roll around, and jump on the net.  It was easy for us to see the artwork being outside even when it cannot be exposed to rain or ultraviolet light. We wanted to design a space as soft as the forest where the boundary between outside and inside disappears. The space attracts people like campfire. The children play inside of the net just as fire and parents sit around and lay on the woods.

Article source: BAKOKO

Kyoai Gakuen University sought proposals for a new building on part of the campus’ recreation grounds. Our design response was to not to build over this existing amenity space, but to lift it to a higher level, supported by the building underneath. The site is also located adjacent to the school’s sports field which currently lacks spectator seating. By sloping the roof in this direction, the proposal could provide additional value by providing seating for sports events.
