共生の森 3

Forests of Symbiosis 3

Residential buildings should positively relate to the contexts of surrounding environments. Rather,they should positively relate to the surroundings. This concept would be accomplished by carefully designing the trees outside, though YDS Architects always seek other architectural methods.

In the forest of ‘Forests of Grids’, the image is that all the people in the city would enjoy the nature of the forest. By digging a hole in the curved wall around the forest, one would see trees from outside the building. People who come and go in the city as well as residents would enjoy changes of the trees by the seasons.

This residential building would blend in the city and adds a new scenery of the city. Residents would enjoy the trees in the forest from agora in the second floor and stairs, and also enjoy urban scenes through the hole.

By opening up the natures of the forest, a new relationship between the architecture and the city has come into being.

 

都市や街並に調和するだけでなく、積極的に働きかける集合住宅をつくりたいと考えています。

「吉祥寺の集合住宅1」では広場として森をつくり、街を行き交う人も森の樹木を楽しむことが出来るように考えました。森を囲むコンクリート打ち放しの壁面に開口を開け、住まい手だけでなく、街からも臨めることが出来ます。

森の樹木の成長・四季折々の変化を、住まい手も街を行き交う人も楽しむことが出来ます。建築が自然と共に街の風景の一つになることを意図しました。

住まい手は中庭の自然を森・階段・ふれあい広場から楽しめ、コンクリート打ち放しの開口を通して、都市空間を眺めることが出来ます。

建築が包み込んでいる中庭の自然を街に開くことで、新たな建築と都市の関係性を創り出しました。
