ひかり棚 Light trellis

2013/ Public use/ Shizuoka

 

静岡県伊豆の国市で行われた伝統芸能会館のコンペ応募案である。閑散とした町に賑わいを取り戻すため、町の人が集まる場の提案が求められた。そこでひかり棚と呼ばれる屋根を架け、敷地全体に大きな木陰を作っていく。明るく快適な半屋外スペースに引き寄せられるように人が集まり始め、同時に賑わいを定着させるための装置を点在させていく。ひかり棚の下は誰もが使える公園となり、練習スタジオとなり、新鮮な野菜を売る市場となっていく。さらに環境負荷低減にも寄与するこのひかり棚により内外の快適性が上がり、閉じられた建築自体も徐々に開かれていくことを期待している。

This is the competition proposal for a traditional performing arts center located in Izunokuni-shi of Shizuoka prefecture. In order to regain the bustle in this deserted town, we have proposed a place where the townspeople can gather. We shade the whole site with what we call the “Light Trellis.” People will be gravitated to the bright, comfortable semi-outdoor space and start to gather. At the same time, handling the hustle and bustle of the crowd with devices dotted around the area. The space under the “Light Trellis” will be a park where all can enjoy. It will also house a training studio and a market where people can sell fresh vegetables. The interior and exterior comfort will be increased by the environmental, load-reducing “Light Trellis.” We hope the closed architecture itself will be open to the town.
