Tadao Ando- Koshino house analysis presentation

  • My partner says the difference is incredible! My partner has probably punched me a hundred times to get me to roll over and stop snoring. I have been using your techniques recently and now my partner has told me that the difference is incredible. But what has amazed me the most is how much better and more energetic I now feel after a good night's sleep! Thank you so much! ▲▲▲ http://t.cn/AigiN2V1

Tadao Ando- Koshino house

  1. 1. TADAO ANDO Koshino House, Ashiya Group 6 Tutor – Mr. Bryan
  2. 2. Biography Born 13th September 1941 in Osaka Japan Ando had many careers including professional boxer, local carpenter “As it happens work was carried on where I lived when I was 15, and I got to know some of the carpenters. About the same time, in a used book store I saw a book on the complete work of Le Corbusier. I recopied some of his drawings and I would say that that is how I began to be interested in architecture”
  3. 3. Emptiness Within only light and space surround the visitor. Koshino House, Japan 1980-84 Traits in Tadao Ando’s buildings
  4. 4. Tactility in the use of light and shadows Hard walls seem soft to touch. They exclude then enclose, admitting light, wind and passing visitor, who leaves behind the disorder of everyday existence to be sheltered in a realm of stillness. Church of Light, Japan 1988 4 x 4 House, Japan 2001-3
  5. 5. Tadao Ando blends together the site and the building. He does this by incorporating the landscape into the building. Additionally, Ando makes use of every bit of the site Chichu Art Museum 2004
  6. 6. Materiality His powerful concrete walls set a limit. Beyond this point there is no passage but that is opened by his will. • mostly uses concrete, glass and wooden and stone floors Pringiers in Sri Lanka 2005
  7. 7. KOSHINO HOUSE
  8. 8. Located at the foot of the Rokko Mountains, in Ashiya City, east of Kobe. Completed in two phases (1980-81and 1983-84). The Koshino House was originally made up of two parallel rectangular concrete boxes.
  9. 9. In the second phase, a fan shaped extension which now contains the Atelier was added. One unusual feature of this house is that the visitor approaches it from above, and is fully aware of the plan of the house, if not its specific function from outside. The design element requires extreme austerity * Additional curve Renovated in the year 1983.
  10. 10. Ground Floor Plan 1. Atelier 2. Living room 3. Bed rooms The volume closer to six identical rooms, is aligned like Le Corbusier’s monastic cells at Sainte-Marie-de-la- Tourette.
  11. 11. First Floor Plan 1. Study 2. Bedroom 3. Terrace
  12. 12. Brutalism/ Brutal architecture Asymmetrical Balance Non separated Alignment Scale & Proportion Unity. Harmony Pattern-Repetition Hierarchy Blending Principles of Designs Used in the Koshino House
  13. 13. Brutalism Architecture It is a movement in architecture that flourished from the 1950s to the mid-1970s, descending from the modernist architectural movement of the early 20th century. A term used by Le Corbusier to describe his choice of material. Tadao Ando who is highly inspired from Le Corbusier uses this kind of architecture in a lot of his buildings. It is raw and without ornamentation
  14. 14. Asymmetrical Balance Not symmetrical , with the parts not arranged correspondingly identical on both sides of the central axis. It creates a sense of equilibrium by the arrangement of two sets of forms of different size and shape. In this case the middle staircase acts like the line of symmetry and both sides have asymmetrical balance.
  15. 15. Non Separated When one structure gives an illusion of being separated yet being connected. The structure here is separated along the axis in the exterior while connected underground in the interior. This gives an illusion of separation and yet is connected.
  16. 16. Alignment When the plan of the design structure has all its elements parallel to each other. In this case the 2 rectangular blocks are parallel to each other hence its aligned together. The later addition has one of its sides parallel to the structure too.
  17. 17. Scale and Proportion The relationship of one part or the whole to an outside measure, such as the human body. Variation of scale. INTIMATE, IMPRESSIVELY and MONUMENTAL. This is an intimate scale. The living room and dinning room have a double story height which is balanced by the small area given to the living and dinning area.
  18. 18. Unity. Harmony A oneness and absence of diversity ; a combination or arrangements and the ordering of all the elements in a work that each contributes to the total aesthetic effect. This is seen in the interior of the building. With similar materials and same esthetic value and openings.
  19. 19. Pattern Repetition The repetitive elements in design. The ordered arrangement of parts into a pattern may occur at various scales at different distances. This is seen in the interior, the rectangular structure have a sense of repetition room alignment with a pattern of the window opening in one rectangle also shows pattern
  20. 20. Hierarchy A special importance or significance placed upon or imparted to something; a sharpness or vividness of outline. Emphasis requires that one idea or design themes be dominant, and is important in achieving unity in design This idea that dominates is given greater forcefulness through making other features less prominent
  21. 21. Blending Gradual merging of one thing into another; the process of bringing together into one. The building blending in with the topography of the surrounding forms a union between nature and the building itself.
  22. 22. Conclusion All of Ando’s choices in life have shaped him into the Architect he is today. He challenged the norms as he started his career and today has his own philosophy. His designs are modern and pure in form and space. Everything he creates is harmoniously in balance though evidently sharp. He believes that less is more. Tadao Ando has won many international awards in architecture, which is why he remains one of the world’s leading contemporary architects.
