木下昌大展「最適化する建築」展示キャプション

Masahiro Kinoshita Exhibition - Optimized Architecture Captions

環境に応える建築のカタチ
空手には大きな掛け声がつきものだが、道路の向かい側に建つ民家への騒音対策のため、夏場も窓を開けずに利用しなければならない。さらに大学内の総電気容量の関係から、引き込める電気容量が少なくエアコンに頼ることもできない。このような与条件でこのプロジェクトはスタートした。最低限の消費電力で、理想的な練習ができる室内環境を目指して計画を進めている最中、東日本大震災が起こった。特殊な与条件での特別な建築だと思っていた今回のプロジェクトが、途端に普遍的な問題に向きあうプロジェクトへと変貌した。建築の外形を変形させる事で、最小限の設備機器でも快適な環境をつくる事ができる。そんな本来建築のカタチが備えているはずの力を引き出す事を目指した。

A Form of Architecture that Corresponds to the Surrounding Environment
Though yelling loudly is integral to karate, students have to use this hall with its windows closed even during the summer so as to reduce noise pollution for the houses across the street. Furthermore, of the total volume of electricity available within the university, the hall is allowed to use only a small amount, meaning that relying on air conditioners is also not an option. This project was born out of these conditions. While developing a plan aiming to create an ideal training environment with minimal power usage, the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake struck. What started as an architectural project responding to specific given conditions all of a sudden turned into a project dealing with more universal issues. A comfortable environment could be created with the minimum facilities and equipment by changing the exterior of the architecture, aiming to bring out the innate power of architecture.
