  • 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 ...

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.

  • One Minute Architecture: SANAA Sumida Hokusai Museum

    A visit to Sanaa's Hokusai Museum in Tokyo. I think the building itself is quite beautiful. The brushed metal clad facade and triangular cut wedges are proportionately well balanced, but that's where it all stops. SANAA, Kazuyo Sejima and Rye Nishizawa received the Pritzker prize in 2010 for being "deceptively simple" and for their architecture which "stands out in direct contrast with the bombastic". Ironically great care has been taken by the Sumida-ward who runs the museum to destroy the simplicity of the spaces. Signs and cones are placed everywhere in order to attend people of the sloped walls, windows and staircases, corners. The programme is rather odd with a toilet right next to the entrance reception. The reception desk, umbrella stands, and other signage are a mere aftertho...

  • Tokujin Yoshioka reveals alternative vision for Tokyo Olympic stadium

    Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka has revealed his own vision for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic stadium, which he was not permitted to enter into the design competition. Yoshioka – best known for his transparent furniture and weather-themed installations – planned to compete against Kengo Kuma and Toyo Ito in the most recent stadium design contest, but was excluded from entering. Like original competition winner Zaha Hadid, who was also unable to bid for the project again, the Tokyo-based designer could not meet the brief criteria without finding a construction partner able to guarantee a budget. "Since the competition this time around called for a design-build format, countless architects including Zaha Hadid and myself were not able to participate," said Yoshioka. The designer's proposal i...

    Frank Lloyd Wright's Tokyo "Imperial Hotel" (Teikoku Hoteru), completed in 1923, was described by the architect as a blending of East and West, and thus neither of the East nor the West. The hotel was demolished in 1967 just as skyscrapers began to take over Tokyo, but surviving photographs and publications from the Wright Archives give us a glimpse of the lost architectural masterpiece.

    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.

  • 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...

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/

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 organisms. 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.

A visit to Sanaa's Hokusai Museum in Tokyo. I think the building itself is quite beautiful. The brushed metal clad facade and triangular cut wedges are proportionately well balanced, but that's where it all stops. SANAA, Kazuyo Sejima and Rye Nishizawa received the Pritzker prize in 2010 for being "deceptively simple" and for their architecture which "stands out in direct contrast with the bombastic". Ironically great care has been taken by the Sumida-ward who runs the museum to destroy the simplicity of the spaces. Signs and cones are placed everywhere in order to attend people of the sloped walls, windows and staircases, corners. The programme is rather odd with a toilet right next to the entrance reception. The reception desk, umbrella stands, and other signage are a mere afterthought and don't seem to have been part of the original design. Furthermore, circulation with the main exhibition hall being on the 4th floor and accessible by only two small lifts seems to be problematic as well. It does not look like that Sumida can count on a Bilbao-effect with this building. I'm also curious to know how much Sanaa was involved in the discussion of the programme.

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

Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka has revealed his own vision for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic stadium, which he was not permitted to enter into the design competition. Yoshioka – best known for his transparent furniture and weather-themed installations – planned to compete against Kengo Kuma and Toyo Ito in the most recent stadium design contest, but was excluded from entering. Like original competition winner Zaha Hadid, who was also unable to bid for the project again, the Tokyo-based designer could not meet the brief criteria without finding a construction partner able to guarantee a budget. "Since the competition this time around called for a design-build format, countless architects including Zaha Hadid and myself were not able to participate," said Yoshioka. The designer's proposal is for a ring-shaped stadium with a pool of water on the roof. This pool could be repurposed as an iceskating rink, he suggests, while during events it would integrate a ring of fire. "A piece of architecture which transcends form becomes a fountain for athletes, and at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics it will be reborn as a huge platform for the Olympic Flame – a symbol of courage and hope to people all over the world," he added.

Frank Lloyd Wright's Tokyo "Imperial Hotel" (Teikoku Hoteru), completed in 1923, was described by the architect as a blending of East and West, and thus neither of the East nor the West. The hotel was demolished in 1967 just as skyscrapers began to take over Tokyo, but surviving photographs and publications from the Wright Archives give us a glimpse of the lost architectural masterpiece.

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.

“Architectural spaces can take away or awaken abilities and sensations that we humans possess innately. Through the practice I’ve always been conscious of that—how can we expand our abilities and sensations with architectural spaces? In this lecture I will talk about it especially from the point of view of spatial dimension, gravity, and time, with my various projects.” Go Hasegawa earned a Master of Engineering degree from the Tokyo Institute of Technology in 2002 and worked at Taira Nishizawa Architects before establishing Go Hasegawa & Associates in 2005. He has taught at Tokyo Institute of Technology, the Academy of Architecture of Mendrisio, Oslo School of Architecture and Design, and UCLA and is currently a design critic in architecture at the GSD. In 2015, he received his PhD in Engineering from the Tokyo Institute of Technology. Hasegawa is the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2008 Shinkenchiku Prize and selection as one of the ten 2014 AR Design Vanguard architects. His new monograph is newly published by A+U as of January 2017.

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/

Shigeru Ban Eco-Architect and Three-Dimensional Poet Shigeru Ban's practical philosophy of architecture involves nothing less than redefining aesthetics, space, materials and structure. His unusual modular shelter design using recycled paper and cardboard shipping tubes, for example, provided evacuees with sturdy havens after the Great East Japan Earthquake. Shigeru graduated from Cooper Union's Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture, worked at Arata Isozaki's atelier, and in 1985 founded Shigeru Ban Architects. His notable works include Curtain Wall House, the Japanese Pavilion at Expo 2000 in Hannover, Germany, and the Centre Pompidou-Metz museum of modern and contemporary arts in France. Shigeru has received a wealth of awards, including the Architectural Institute of Japan Prize, Auguste Perret Prize, and the Ministry of Education's Award for Fine Arts. Currently on the faculty at the Kyoto University of Art and Design, he has also taught at Harvard, Cornell and Keio University. http://www.shigerubanarchitects.com About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
