    6. 6. Azuma House 住吉の長屋• Introduction• One of the earliest works of the self-taught architect Tadao Ando is the Azuma House in Sumiyoshi, where the house is split into a spaces devoted to daily life (composed of an austere geometry) by the insertion of an abstract space for the games of wind and light. His goal, he says, was to introduce a question on the inertia that has invaded human dwellings.
    7. 7. • Situation• Located in Sumiyoshi, Osaka, Azuma House replaces one of the traditional houses in the area built in wood. While this area is not the most chaotic of the city, there is a clear contrast between this "concrete box" and its surrounding buildings. 7
    8. 8. • Concept• Built between medians, this apartment is perched on a lot of 57.3 m². The total square fottage of 64.7 m² is divided into three equal sections: two floors and a patio.• This box of concrete occupies the entire site. The building, centripetal as far as its organization, has a tripartite structure centered around an uncovered patio. 8
    9. 9. • Materials• The reinforced concrete used in this house is presented as the ornamentation for the facade. 9

    11. 11. • Spaces• On the ground floor are located the living room and a kitchen, separated by the central outside courtyard and the staircase that leads to the upper floor, where the two bedrooms are joined by a walkway. The central uncovered area is the only source of natural light throughout the house. 11
    12. 12. • The courtyard, which acts as the hub of daily life in the house, separates the living room located at one end of the ground floor from the kitchen-dining room and bathroom, located in another end. On the top floor, the childrens rooms on one side face the master bedroom on the other side of the central courtyard, which is reached by a bridge. The building shows a blind or solid facade to the street. The presence of a door suggests the use of this box. 12
    13. 13. • There is a strong similarity among these four facades. The first building (1) is, of course, the famous Azuma House by Tadao Ando. The rest of the three buildings (2, 3 & 4) were designed by a much younger generation of architects. Ando’s Azuma House was epoch-making in the history of Japanese design, but I doubt if it had any influence on these younger architects. The resemblance is merely superficial when you see what is going on on the other side. Check it out by yourself. 13
