  • Tokyo's impermanent skinny house made to age well with owners

    Inheritance taxes on land in Japan means plots often get smaller as they are passed on. This “divide and sell” phenomenon in Tokyo translates into some very tiny home sites. When architects Masahiro and Mao Harada were tasked with creating a home on a lot only 2 meters (6.5 feet) wide at its narrowest point, they chose to interpret small as “near” and use the small scale to their advantage. On the narrowest portion of the lot, along the street, they created a “gatehouse”: used as both an entryway and offices for the clients. The lower level is a gallery for the wife’s art, which is mostly, appropriately, very tiny objects. The second floor, accessible only by a small, wooden ladder, houses the husband’s office with walls lined with books and movies (he directs commercial). Everything in ...

  • Nakagin: 140 plug n' play capsules float in metabolist tower

    Resembling clusters of space pods stacked 13 stories tall, the Nakagin Capsule Tower is the world’s first example of capsule architecture. When erected in 1972, tiny prefab apartments were stacked like LEGOs (by crane) around a concrete core. Attached by only 4 high-tension bolts, the capsules were designed to be plugged in and replaced when necessary. Each pod was a micro apartment measuring 4 by 2.5 meters, intended for Japanese businessmen who wanted to avoid a long commute home. Everything came built-in: a bed, a sink, a refrigerator, bathroom, folding desk and even a TV, radio and alarm clock. Built in 1972 in Tokyo’s Ginza District, the building is one of the only remaining examples of Metabolist architecture: a movement begun in the 1960s that treated cities as dynamic, evolving ...

His practice seeks to challenge the definition of architecture by blending interior and exterior, structure and furniture, natural landscape and architecture. Based primarily in his home country of Japan, Fujimoto draws architectural inspiration from nature and embraces openness, flexibility, and transparency across his work. In this Current Work lecture, titled “Between Nature and Architecture,” Fujimoto presents three conceptual early works and six recent projects. The early unbuilt projects, conceived of following his graduation from the University of Tokyo in 1994, illustrate the formation of principles that have carried through to today, including abandonment of solid walls and the design of spaces witho...

  • Switch flat Tokyo: mobile walls transform home into office

    To avoid paying Tokyo rents for office space, architect Yuko Shibata created moving walls that allow her to switch between home and office. At the equivalent cost of 3 months of office rental, or about $7000, Shibata created a morphing home/office she calls “Switch”. Inspired by fusuma, the sliding paper screens used to divide rooms in traditional Japanese homes, Shibata created sliding bookshelves to divide and transform the rooms. One partition wall, weighing 750 kilograms (1450 pounds), moves easily on rollers switching the main space from dining room into a meeting room plus separate library. To open up her study and bedroom, she cut a hole in the wall and installed another mobile bookshelf wall that pivots out to create a two-room workspace/library plus a partitioned bedroom. By le...

  • Modern-old Japan mud house: smart & bioclimatic on a budget

    To bring natural homes into the 21 Century, architect Tono Mirai designed “Future House”: a home that blends earth building and traditional joinery with modern design. Located in Miura, Kanagawa (about an hour and a half south of Tokyo), this fusion home was built for a businessman and his wife and 3 children. The client wanted a healthy and natural home as an escape from his daily commute to Tokyo, but wanted something modern. Mirai designed a home oriented to the south so that its earthen floors and walls (of traditional Japanese mud plaster) can act as heat sinks for the winter sun. He built vents into the outer walls to naturally control the flow of air. The extensive living roof also acts as an insulator. Mirai calls it a “very natural way” to insulate, noting that the temperature ...

    When a family of four asked architect Takeshi Hosaka to create a home embedded in nature on a small Tokyo lot, he created not one, but two homes. Dubbing it Inside House plus Outside House, he designed one small shelter for the indoor activities: cooking, eating, sleeping, bathing- and another for the outdoors: “growing plants, keeping insects, maintenance of bicycles, hammock, sunbathing, gardening, playing with water, seeing the sky, tools for mountain climbing, napping and reading books, etc.” Hosaka created this exterior home to highlight those things we normally eliminate from modern architecture and cities: rain, water, soil, sand, animals, insects and birds.

As the verticalization of cities progresses, we are increasingly separated from the natural environment and forced to live in a mechanically controlled artificial environment. When we consider ecology and sustainability, the most important themes for architecture and cities in the 21st century, we must distance ourselves from Modernism and reconstruct architecture based on the life that embraces nature. In this lecture, Toyo Ito will explore this theme through the series of studies done with Harvard GSD students in Fall 2015, concerning tomorrow’s architecture on the small island of Omishima, Japan; and public architecture in regional cities, and a proposal for the New National Stadium in Japan.

In contrast with the original building's more western style, the design of the present Honkan by Watanabe Jin is the more eastern "emperor's crown style". Construction began in 1932, and the building was opened in 1938. The displays provide a general view of Japanese art. It contains 23 exhibition rooms on two floors, "Highlights of Japanese Art," chronological exhibitions from 10000 B.C. to the late 19th century on the second floor, and exhibitions of each type of art, such as ceramics, and swords, thematic exhibitions and the donations gallery are on the first.

Inheritance taxes on land in Japan means plots often get smaller as they are passed on. This “divide and sell” phenomenon in Tokyo translates into some very tiny home sites. When architects Masahiro and Mao Harada were tasked with creating a home on a lot only 2 meters (6.5 feet) wide at its narrowest point, they chose to interpret small as “near” and use the small scale to their advantage. On the narrowest portion of the lot, along the street, they created a “gatehouse”: used as both an entryway and offices for the clients. The lower level is a gallery for the wife’s art, which is mostly, appropriately, very tiny objects. The second floor, accessible only by a small, wooden ladder, houses the husband’s office with walls lined with books and movies (he directs commercial). Everything in the Gatehouse is within touching distance, and this is important, and a positive thing. Masahiro calls this type of design “peach skin”. “The nearness between the materials and my eye make clear the very small grains, like a peach skin, so the resolution is richer. When you see big things from a distance you can miss details.” Behind the Gatehouse, the lot opens up a bit to accommodate the rest of the home. To comply with building codes limiting home height, the Haradas chose to build the home a few feet underground. Again, they chose to see this as an advantage, allowing for a partly submerged bedroom and bathroom, that allow one to feel “like an animal” while having a bath in the ground or “like an insect” when lying on the bed, at eye level with the plants. After the small, intimate room downstairs the completely open, and high-ceilinged, upstairs feels large. Here one wall is dedicated to a kitchen (partly camouflaged behind tan doors and cabinets) and the other to a full-wall bookshelf which is also structural. Masahiro explains the benefits of using vertical shelf supports that are narrow and very close to each other: the material is cheap; it can be brought in by hand; and it can be created without heavy equipment and instead, by skilled craftspeople. For the interior finish on both the walls and the floors, they used MDF (medium-density fiberboard) both because it is very affordable, but also because it resembles the paper walls in traditional Japanese homes. “Here we use paper and wooden materials and everything can return to the earth, so the time scale is near, or small,” explains Masahiro. “We are always thinking about scale. Scale isn’t just big or small. Scale is also time. This building has a permanent quality, but it also feels ephemeral. This house lives with people, and dies with people, and that’s a good thing.” Mount Fuji Architects: http://fuji-studio.jp/ Original story: https://faircompanies.com/videos/tokyos-impermanent-skinny-house-made-to-age-well-with-owners/

Designed by Kisho Kurokawa for sustainability and recycleability, the Nakagin Tower has not been maintained and now nearly 50 years after it’s construction, many of the capsules are uninhabitable. In 2007, when the building's residents voted to demolish the building. Kurokawa proposed "unplugging" the worn-out units and replacing them with newer capsules (an idea supported by the Japan Institute of Architects). Kurokawa died in late 2007. Given the high rents in the Ginza neighborhood, most of the residents continue to push to replace the entire building, but an online group has organized to save the building and its fate remains unclear. Today, a few residents like Masato Abe rent their unit outs on AirBnB. We (the faircompanies family of five) rented it for a night. In this video, Abe shows us his neighbor’s unit which is in nearly original condition and we filmed our night with the five of us sleeping in a self-contained capsule built for one.

"The design should be seen as the only way to achieve value for money in the market," says Zaha Hadid Architects in the film. The estimated cost of the Japan National Stadium rose to 252 billion yen (£1.3 billion) last year and has seen opposition from many Japanese architects. The government has now decided to start again with a new design. But the London-based firm claims the increase is due to a 25 per cent rise in costs across Tokyo's construction market over the past two years. In the film, it says it will be impossible to create an equivalent stadium for less money.

Recorded: April 15, 2014 Sou Fujimoto established his Tokyo-based firm in 2000. His practice seeks to challenge the definition of architecture by blending interior and exterior, structure and furniture, natural landscape and architecture. Based primarily in his home country of Japan, Fujimoto draws architectural inspiration from nature and embraces openness, flexibility, and transparency across his work. In this Current Work lecture, titled “Between Nature and Architecture,” Fujimoto presents three conceptual early works and six recent projects. The early unbuilt projects, conceived of following his graduation from the University of Tokyo in 1994, illustrate the formation of principles that have carried through to today, including abandonment of solid walls and the design of spaces without fixed function. Finding inspiration in the traditional Japanese engawa, a narrow veranda that serves as passageway between house and garden, Fujimoto translates these “ambiguous, in-between spaces” into his contemporary buildings. The six completed and current projects he discusses are: - The Serpentine Pavilion 2013 (London), a cloud-like temporary structure built for the Serpentine Gallery’s annual series House NA (Tokyo), a small, transparent house composed of many individual floor plates at varied heights - Toilet in Nature (Ichihara, Chiba, Japan), a public toilet situated in a landscaped garden - House N (Oita, Japan), a private house built as a “box in a box in a box” with large openings to the outdoors - Musashino Art University Library (Kodaira, Tokyo, Japan), entirely composed of bookshelves to create the impression of an endless library - L’Arbre Blanc (Montpellier, France), a high-rise apartment building with large balconies of varied size and placement These projects represent how Sou Fujimoto Architects translates uniform systems — such as a grid of steel tube, 3.5 by 1.5 meter floor plates, or repeating bookshelves — into structures that eliminate traditional divisions between indoor and outdoor and challenge perceptions of space and form. The Current Work series invites significant international figures who powerfully influence contemporary architectural practice and shape the future of the built environment to present their work and ideas to a public audience.

To avoid paying Tokyo rents for office space, architect Yuko Shibata created moving walls that allow her to switch between home and office. At the equivalent cost of 3 months of office rental, or about $7000, Shibata created a morphing home/office she calls “Switch”. Inspired by fusuma, the sliding paper screens used to divide rooms in traditional Japanese homes, Shibata created sliding bookshelves to divide and transform the rooms. One partition wall, weighing 750 kilograms (1450 pounds), moves easily on rollers switching the main space from dining room into a meeting room plus separate library. To open up her study and bedroom, she cut a hole in the wall and installed another mobile bookshelf wall that pivots out to create a two-room workspace/library plus a partitioned bedroom. By leaving the structural walls and plumbing intact, the project was very affordable while extending the functional space. yukoshibata.com Original story: http://faircompanies.com/videos/view/switch-flat-tokyo-mobile-walls-transform-home-intofice/

To bring natural homes into the 21 Century, architect Tono Mirai designed “Future House”: a home that blends earth building and traditional joinery with modern design. Located in Miura, Kanagawa (about an hour and a half south of Tokyo), this fusion home was built for a businessman and his wife and 3 children. The client wanted a healthy and natural home as an escape from his daily commute to Tokyo, but wanted something modern. Mirai designed a home oriented to the south so that its earthen floors and walls (of traditional Japanese mud plaster) can act as heat sinks for the winter sun. He built vents into the outer walls to naturally control the flow of air. The extensive living roof also acts as an insulator. Mirai calls it a “very natural way” to insulate, noting that the temperature difference between outside and inside the roof can be more than 10 degrees. With all the passive solar and natural venting, the home doesn’t need AC or heating (beyond a small wood stove) and it delivers a natural air quality and “peacefulness” requested by the client. http://www.tonomirai.com/#!wg-english/c1cdj

Explore the balance between traditional Japanese architecture and Western influence starting with the introduction of Western building styles in the 19th century through the influence of Le Corbusier in the mid-20th century and then up to the present day. ↓ More info below. ↓ Take this course free on edX: https://www.edx.org/course/modern-japanese-architecture-meiji-tokyotechx-arch101x ABOUT THIS COURSE Examine how architecture reflects Japan’s history, starting with its emergence as a new nation in the 19th century and the building of the Western-style capital city of Tokyo on the foundations of Edo. New building materials and construction methods reflected changing times, and the radical contrast between tradition and modernism in the nation was clearly visible in architecture throughout Japan. After exploring the intense Westernization Japan experienced to rival the world’s developed countries, we will turn to look at how Japanese architects developed their own version of Modernism. Initially, Japanese wanted to pursue the discoveries of the Franco-Swiss Le Corbusier and of Walter Gropius at the German Bauhaus. But soon, Japan also began to produce its own 20th-century architects and develop its own style. Following World War II, Kenzo Tange became the first Japanese architect in history to achieve international fame. Lastly, we will mount an interview-based case study titled “Exploring Tokyo Tech’s Twenty-First Century O-okayama Campus.” Tokyo Institute of Technology (aka Tokyo Tech) possesses its own unique and unbroken succession of architects and a campus consisting of their buildings. We will learn about Kazuo Shinohara, one of the most prominent Japanese designers of the second half of the 20th century, and several of his renowned disciples from Tokyo Tech. This course aims to illustrate the present state of Japanese Modernist and postmodern building, as well as the distance covered over the past 150 years, including the 130-year history of Tokyo Tech itself. Join us on this journey through time as we examine and admire Japan’s architecture to better understand Japanese history. WHAT YOU'LL LEARN - How and why today’s Japanese architecture differs from the West - A brief cultural history of Japan in the modern period - A greater understanding of the works of several prominent Japanese designers - The materials and structural design used by Japanese architects - Overall goals and constraints affecting Japanese architects today

When a family of four asked architect Takeshi Hosaka to create a home embedded in nature on a small Tokyo lot, he created not one, but two homes. Dubbing it Inside House plus Outside House, he designed one small shelter for the indoor activities: cooking, eating, sleeping, bathing- and another for the outdoors: “growing plants, keeping insects, maintenance of bicycles, hammock, sunbathing, gardening, playing with water, seeing the sky, tools for mountain climbing, napping and reading books, etc.” Hosaka created this exterior home to highlight those things we normally eliminate from modern architecture and cities: rain, water, soil, sand, animals, insects and birds.

Next in Tokyo, Japan, we'll take a look at the construction site of Tokyo Sky Tree, the tallest broadcasting tower in the world. Our correspondent spoke with the designer of Tokyo Sky Tree on how it was built to resist even the strongest earthquake in the country. Tokyo Sky Tree will become the world's tallest free standing broadcast tower, and is revealing its secret in overcoming earthquakes in quake-prone Japan. Standing over 630 meters high, Tokyo Sky Tree was designed by Nikken Sekkei, a Japanese architecture firm experienced in building quake-resistant, high-rise buildings in Japan. The company developed a system of adding mass as a balancing weight to buildings, to control how they sway during an earthquake. For the Tokyo Sky Tree project, the emergency staircase, situated in the core of the tower, acts as the mass, controlling sway during an earthquake. According to Nikken Sekkei, it's the first in the world. [Eizo Toyoda, P.R Manager, Nikken Sekkei]: "The core column and the surrounding steel frame are constructed separately. Therefore, when it shakes from an earthquake, they will shake in different ways. The system works by utilizing their different ways of shaking to repress the overall sway." Along the core, oil dampers are also installed to absorb shock. These act as cushions and are able to absorb swaying up to 50 percent. [Eizo Toyoda, P.R Manager, Nikken Sekkei]: "In the middle there's a space of about a meter, and from the height of 125 to 375 meters, we put six oil dampers. This is to control swaying so that the core column won't hit the inner part of the tower. They also serve to absorb the energy from an earthquake." The concept of using a central mass for the Tokyo Sky Tree was borrowed from traditional Japanese wisdom of building five-story pagodas. The longest standing pagoda in Japan is regarded to be at Horyu-ji Temple in Nara Prefecture, built in the 7th century. Tokyo Sky Tree will be opened to the public in May 2012 as Tokyo's newest landmark and popular tourist attraction.

3/7/16 Note: Various images blurred at the request of the speaker. As the verticalization of cities progresses, we are increasingly separated from the natural environment and forced to live in a mechanically controlled artificial environment. When we consider ecology and sustainability, the most important themes for architecture and cities in the 21st century, we must distance ourselves from Modernism and reconstruct architecture based on the life that embraces nature. In this lecture, Toyo Ito will explore this theme through the series of studies done with Harvard GSD students in Fall 2015, concerning tomorrow’s architecture on the small island of Omishima, Japan; and public architecture in regional cities, and a proposal for the New National Stadium in Japan. Toyo Ito, Kenzo Tange Design Critic in Architecture at Harvard GSD, is principal of Toyo Ito & Associates, Architects, in Tokyo.

Tokyo National Museum - Honakan (Japanese Gallery) The original Main Gallery (designed by the British architect Josiah Conder) was severely damaged in the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923. In contrast with the original building's more western style, the design of the present Honkan by Watanabe Jin is the more eastern "emperor's crown style". Construction began in 1932, and the building was opened in 1938. The displays provide a general view of Japanese art. It contains 23 exhibition rooms on two floors, "Highlights of Japanese Art," chronological exhibitions from 10000 B.C. to the late 19th century on the second floor, and exhibitions of each type of art, such as ceramics, and swords, thematic exhibitions and the donations gallery are on the first.
