Description
In this context, ARCHsharing invites participants to work on a small scale project in Omotesando district, where businesses came to interact with the existing residential structure. The plot with modest dimensions will host a mixed program linking home and workspace areas.
The proposal will take into account the cyclical renewal of Japanese buildings. A sustainable architecture that adapts easily or renews to the rhythm of generations and environmental factors will be appreciated.
Tokyo hosts a strong desire to develop a line of thought on habitat. The many remarkable constructions of individual housing, or the last two exhibitions «House Vision» in 2013 and 2016, attest to this common interest. Tokyo, through its constant transformations, calls on us to reflect on tomorrow’s challenges. It is in this dynamics that ARCHsharing invites you to imagine the housing of tomorrow.
The proposed site for the competition is in the emblematic district of Omotesando in Tokyo.
Best known for its large avenue punctuated by achievements from renowned architects for luxury brands like Dior, Louis Vuitton or Prada, the area is also the haunt of young designers. Indeed, behind this great avenue there is a residential and commercial area that looks like a small village. With its changing urban fabric, this district is comparable to the «Commersidence» kind evoked by Yoshiharu Tsukamoto, where the arrival of shops bring energy to the area.
The plot chosen for the competition is currently a car park at 5 Chome -11 Jingumae, Shibuya, Tokyo.
