The 31 works represented here range from the Kim House of 1987 to projects that were in progress in spring of .2000. No particular criterion was used in selecting buildings the works. Diverse projects are juxtaposed, from

that were completed

years ago to unsuccessful

entries in

competitions and projects that were unfortunately halted before realization, from extremely small houses to enormous office complexes. They involved different design processes. They include projects of K. Associates /

Architects that were carefully considered in detail as well as collaborative projects undertaken with graduate school students that were deliberately conceived only in diagrammatic form. I believe that differences of background and contest will disappear when these projects of diverse origin are examined solely through the medium of drawings and models. What will be made manifest is the "distance" that lies between architecture and reality. I believe that confirming that "distance" is a necessary first step before the next stage can begirl.

5.95m in

height Inserted in the house's concrete box Is a 2 X3 span steeJ..frame construction,

with outdoor elements such as a cenlral crull, a terrace, 8I1Ida pilOO.The whole plan, one might say, is minimized: a concrete and sleel framework with the Iea~ possible number 01 vertical planes, (glass screens and walls as partitions) and on~ absolutely neoassa!y hOOzontal planes (roof and floor). As a resu~ of this deliberate frugality, the interior space. encapsulated in glass,

gives the impressioo of floating in a Iranspareot exteric;( space, ln I!Jis wak. I intended to build
into a box with clearly defined dimensions (by the size of the plot) a landscape

as deep as

possible. At the same time. !he building provided a first opportunity for me to Ihink about such
typical elements of tradOOnaJ urban housing architecture in Japan as lI::01-niwa and fsubo.niwa (two types of small garden).

to dramatise living in the air.dining block the usual rrove would be to have huge two storey openings. but I opted for the opposite. the first issue in this Hence.I.

On the left is the private rooms zone. And so. proposal is how to deal wiItIthe special landscape. while an the right are the public living _ dining zone. in the pnvate rooms the view is wide open. Fa the two storey high living . The fro of the topmost floor on the left Side indMduiai room block is made 10 appear as thin as possible. Instead. 11is possible to view the entire scene in one sweep. I The site is a special ooe in the Hanshin area. I created two blocks of floating steel reinforced structure. I decided to use small openings exploring how to frame the view. I feel that ~ is an effective approach 10 somehow reverse the general thinking. in the living and dining area the view is framed. and the form rises frcm the road by 7 m with an ascending slope of aroond 30 degrees. And so. and both are joined by a sloping ramp.

was to renew and lio:;orporate Aalto's Defense Corps. Eluiclir1g, an existing, buildl1g on the same site. The Defense Corps Building is an importafIl work in understarn:ling Aalto's architecture. My proposa!sets out to preserve this building with minimal distuorbance to its exterior. The new

building v.oold be set ;., confrontation wi1h the Old by means of an atrium, 54 meters deep and from 20 to 30 meters high, that uIiIlzes the exterior wall t:t the exlsling buiJding. The old and bu'ldings v.oold interact within this atrium space, operWlg a d~ue the past, Within this atrium spacedefined by the gray exterior waI at the Defense Corps Buikfrng and,
fIfN!I

between the present and

opposita, the frosted glass wall 01the music and arts cem.er- I placed a ramp thal-climbs to the
II

concen hall and a broad starcase dascendirlg: to !he art museum. In order to arIicI.llale this space, I' inserted a reinfcreed concrete parIitioo inside the spiral of the ramp. In oontrasl, the roof and southern wall oI1he alJiJm are 01 transparent glass, aOO open this space to the pari( and ,ns
church.

The exterior wall of the new building employs a 3-layer plane structure, combining nonlransparer1t walls of concrete, lransparent or serni-Iranspare walls of glass, and Y.OXI; louvers. Using this 3-layer plane structure, I sought to govern the building's relationship with its tIban context by responding to that context through each interior function. In this way,1 hoped to provide each part 01the interior with space at suitable quaJily.
