I bought a sweater yesterday. Most of the clothes in the store are oversized, and the fitting room is also oversized too. The area is 3 tatami mats and the height is 3 meters. Moreover, there are about 5 such fitting rooms. How much is the rent for the fitting room?However, it is wise to give a brand image in the fitting room.
The basis of one room (space) is square = I type. Considering how to transform this space, one is to bend it. If you bend the square, it becomes L, and if you bend it further, it becomes U, and finally it becomes O. Itsuko Hasegawa’s Kakio house is L, Toyo Ito’s Nakano Honcho house is U, and Kazuyo Sejima’s forest villa is O. On the other hand, there is also an operation called branching as opposed to the operation of bending. If you add one to I, it becomes Y, if you add one more, it becomes K, and if you add a few more, it becomes an octopus leg. Y is my house, K is Palladio’s Teatro Olympico, and the octopus legs are Mr. Fujimoto’s T house. The former is invisible and the latter is compound eye, both of which are very attractive to the space.
Every time I conduct JIA Magazine’s architect interviews I begin with asking their maiden work. Then, I know that what he or she thought at the starting point is thought even in their later years. You can see how sharply the thoughts of youth were burned into your mind. Many architects say giving up, “I can only do this.” Furthermore, there are not only thoughts but also favorite shapes that often appear. Mr. Yamamoto’s three-dimensional frame, Mr. Ito’s tube, Mr. Aoki’s circle, Mr. Furuya’s box, Mr. Sakamoto’s shape that can not be said so, etc. I think architects are also finite people. Given that, Kazuo Shinohara’s four changes are artificial but superhuman.
My favorite critic, Makoto Sataka, tells us to read Lu Xun. So I read what Sataka said about Lu Xun. He noted that Lu Xun was a philosopher of criticism and resistance who doubted Confucianism, just like Nietzsche. Hearing this, I suddenly became interested.
Last year, the Department of Architecture at Tokyo University of Science launched a new course for working adults. Students can study at night in Kagurazaka. With a small class size of 20 students per year, students who entered the program in April were able to make it this far in eight months. Applications will be accepted until February 1.
