The “Blurring Architecture” exhibition that toured around three appealing cities: Location Setagaya-ku, Tokyo, Japan Aachen, Tokyo and Antwerp, has been recorded in this publication. Structure Reinforced concrete It also critically analyses the story behind how ”White U”(1976) Scale 2 stories evolved into the “Sendai Mediatheque”(2000) in six different aspects: Reproduction / Drawing / Simulation / Model / Photography / Text Sendai Mediatheque.

  • Techtonics of the House: This is a private residence in Tokyo. With the use of rib reinforced aluminum panels for floors and walls and aluminum for all other structural elements, the intent of the design was to create a spatial lightness that could not be achieved by other structural means. By utilizing the structural characteristic of aluminum, the focus was mainly on two potentialities: The unity of structure and finish by its use as a surface material, The compression of multiple functions into extruded sectional elements. By applying aluminum as surface material for structural walls and floors, it could simultaneously be used as a finish material. We considered that the totality of the design would produce lightness if the load were dispersed throughout the structure that extended over a surface, rather than intensifying it to specific parts, thus accommodating slender individual structural members. The aluminum can easily be extruded into complex sectional elements with extremely high precision. Employing this property in this project, we attempted to incorporate multiple functions, including structural strength, into one sectional form, ie columns that serve as window sash frames. The presence of the structure is diffused both as a result of the structure being integrated with sash and exterior elements, as well as by the unique materiality of aluminum. The variety of details that typically develop become inconspicuous as they are absorbed into extruded sections. The high precision assured by advanced techniques changes the conventional perception that details must consist of offsets and joints and brings the composition of a building closer to that of an industrial product.
