Knockout the moonlight in Tokyo, Japan by N Maeda Atelier

Friday, June 21st, 2013

Article source: Norisada Maeda

A metaphor used in philosophy is “Mobius’s ring”. This involves taking a piece of tape which is black on one side and white on the other, and twisting the tape halfway and connecting the ends, to form a loop where the side that was black imperceptibly connects to the white side. The idea is to twist the thought that the front is normally black and the back is white, to create a metaphor for connecting and inverting the inside and outside.

Long Tall House in Tokyo, Japan by SPACESPACE

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

Article source: SPACESPACE

The site is located in a typical Japanese crowded residential area, just middle between two stations near to Shibuya. The house of a young married couple is on a strip of land subdivided for sale (about 4m*16m). It adjoins two paths at north and south sides, and locates on a very old retaining wall which runs along the north path and forms 3.5m height cliff. The path were too narrow to comply the current regulations, so we needed removing a part of the wall so that it could be widened.

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.

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.
