Nine Quarter City
|Abstract:||Business.Culture.Technology.People.History.These underlying concepts intricately form a pattern which distinguishes Tokyo, making it unlike any other city in the world. It is these concepts which sustain Tokyo and give it its collision of traditional and modern ideas which continually impact design and the architecture of this cosmopolitan city. Architects and designers must take these ideas into consideration; Tadao Ando and Kengo Kuma are two examples of architects who have brought to the fore through their designs a feeling of space in a world which has forgotten landscape. My design emanated from these influences and thus I came to the conclusion of a theatre, because it encapsulates tradition whilst being versatile in the way it is designed. This versatility enabled me to make my building a public theatre which focuses on the journey through my space as it be. This compilation of my work is based on the devlopment of the design of my theatre in my block L11 in Asakusa Tokyo.Over the last semester my design has been changed and transformed into a final entity.Each week exercises produced a new individual work but not only that it completed one piece of the puzzle,making the concepts and ideas weave their way into the design with reason.My Theatre which is based upon the ancient art of Noh, a type of performance commonly performed on a cyprus stage with a backdrop and all actors being male and upon stage at all times.These themes are the underlying features of my design and are the key pieces which bring it together. The materials and construction were cohesive with my context of japan. A folded plate and the sense of a transparent screen which creates silhouettes as actors perform added to the sense of layering and journeying to find that ‘space.’|
