Stance as an architect


Could you tell us the starting point as an architect and what inspired you to become an architect?

When I was a child, when I drew a picture of a locomotive with chalk on the ground, I saw a cartoon that actually turned into a real locomotive and started running out of it, and I had a dream that I wished to do so. Is the image a reality? After that, I became a high school student and I was able to create the first high-rise Kasumigaseki Building in Japan. I was impressed by the progress of technology, and I was interested in making something since I was a kid.


As an architect, what kind of housing do you want to create?

Also, where do you feel the attractiveness of housing development?

I think that energy saving type housing is required nowadays due to global warming and environmental deterioration. Is it a self-sufficient type that does not depend on fossil fuels, or a housing that has a mechanism that can make the best use of the natural environment?

House-building is about human-building, technology is also advancing rapidly, I think that it has an unattractive attraction of being unfinished forever.


How and how do you think the client's request will be reflected in the house?

Daily discussions are important. In particular, it may be important to bring in as many meetings as possible so that the designer's and the owner's ideas are the same. By sharing the image, the approach gets more momentum.


Please tell us about your impressive work and its concept and episodes.

It took time at A house recently, but I think that the wooden frame and the interior of the interior are softly mixed and have a good atmosphere. It has the concept of sustainable, life-sustaining rural urban housing.

At F's house, it looks old now, but it is a reproduction of a farmhouse with a toroid structure. I think that it is not completely demolished just because it becomes old, there is a taste that is not in the new construction if you put your hands, and I think that it is very comfortable to live by combining floor heating and so on.


Are there any affected architects? Are there any buildings impressed?

After all, it is said that four great masters of modern architecture, Le Corbusier, Frank Lloyd Wright, Mies van der Rohe, Alva Aalto. In Japan, Horyuji Temple in the Nara period and Takumi (Imperial carpenter) architecture of that time, and also Katsura Rikyu, the architecture and gardens of Kobori Enshu period come to mind. It can not be narrowed down to any one.


As in the case of overseas, in Japan, reuse and effective use of existing housing are becoming popular, and renovations and remodeling are drawing attention, but what kind of ideas do you have?

I think it will become a way of thinking that we will make the structure firmly and reuse it when energy saving is made. I think that there is no problem if the piping of the water and sewage is good, insulation is provided, and I can spend summer and winter comfortably. Isn't it enough to think that we will make minor changes at each stage of the life stage of life? However, it must be kept in mind that in the case of existing single-family homes, compliance with the revised Building Standards Act is required.


In the face of the Great East Japan Earthquake, the way you think about housing and architecture will change, but how do you think you will be involved in society as an architect in the future?

Such a residence or environment-building partner is ideally considered to be able to actively show a vision to society or provide a bright image in the future.
