The building itself is a typical 'machiya' (Kyoto traditional townhouse) that is designated as an architectural heritage by the City of Kyoto at 1743. The building was one of the largest 'machiya' rebuilt in the Meiji period. Guided by beliefs that the devil enters from the north and paradise lays westward, the rooms of the house are organized so that ordinary guests and respected visitors interact with different spaces in the complex, the most sacred of which are located at the very back of the house, where a covered veranda offers a meditative vista of the curated garden filled with 100-year-old moss and tress For ...

    Architect Philip Johnson famously remarked, “I have very expensive wallpaper,” referring to the four see-through walls of his Glass House, completed in 1949. Even today transparency defines modern architecture. And our desire to connect our interior living spaces with the outdoors has only increased in recent years. In this video I discuss the use of colossal doors in residential architectural design. The last example describes a low-cost alternative to the colossal door options presented. Topics covered: 1.

The plaza – located outside of Tenri Station in Japan's Nara prefecture – is the studio's largest architecture project after its renovation of the Siam Discovery shopping centre in Bangkok last year. It is also Nendo's first public space. The studio created the master plan for the 6000-square-metre site at Tenri Station, which was previously unused. "This space was used for nothing basically," Nendo founder Oki Sato told Dezeen. "They wanted us to design a park in front of the railway station with information centres, cafes, a stage for music."

Translucency inhabits the broad middle ground between those two. The word “translucent” is derived from the Latin “trans“ ("through") and “lucere“ ("to shine"). Translucent surfaces permit the passage of light while visually obscuring what’s behind it. Historical examples of the use of translucency in architecture abound: the poetic sliced alabaster window above the main altar in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, the shoji (screens) at the Katsura Villa in Kyoto, the stained glass rose windows at the great Chartres Cathedral in France.

The giant futuristic glass structure replaced the old Kyoto station, which burned down in 1952. The new Kyoto Station building was designed by the architect Hiroshi Hara and was constructed to celebrate the 1 200th anniversary of the foundation of Kyoto as the Heian capital.

  • Capsule hotel, ancient city: sleeping in a Kyoto pod for $40

    In the late ‘70s, Metabolist architect Kisho Kurokawa (designer of the Nakagin capsule tower) dreamt up “a hotel for 2001”. The idea was to do away with rooms and implement simple crawl spaces for sleeping. Today the capsule hotel concept is well-known in Japan. Originally popularized by businesspeople who missed the last train, these sleeping pods have been given a sleeker makeover. Located near Kyoto’s Gion (the traditional geisha district), 9 Hours has re-developed the capsule concept befitting the iPhone generation: the pods are minimal, functional and easy to use (thanks to the icons on the walls and floors). The *faircompanies family spent a night in these affordable ($40/night) pods and found these sleep crawl spaces (220 cm long by 108 cm wide and high) surprisingly spacious (e...

LOUIS VUITTON Cruise Collection 2018 Kyoto MIHO Museum - Fashion Channel JAPAN, KYOTO - MIHO MUSEUM, DESIGNED IN 1997 BY ARCHITECT I.M.PEI A «teletransportation» of the Maison Louis Vuitton, the purveyor of the French “art de vivre” to Japan, a land that reconciles the mastery of mother nature and a profound respect for her. There is perhaps no better symbol of the quest to marry extreme modernity with natural surroundings than the Miho Museum. Architect I.M.Pei conceived the building to represent Shangri-La, the mythic heaven on earth thought to be found in a secret Himalayan valley. The fusion of urban and natural that so pervades Japan has served Louis Vuitton as a starting point for this collection. The 2018 cruise collection alternates between the present day and a noble ancestral civilization, between futurism and poetry, between huge, vibrant cities and delicate landscapes. At the very heart of the question is the evolution from tradition to modernity. The references are obvious, almost like a sign of respect. The garments recall samurai, figurative engraving, inked landscapes, ceremonial dress, the keikogi of martial arts, the Kurosawa cinematic dramaturgy, or the unique melancholy of Kitano. Urban pantsuits and architectural tunics are designed in the spirit of Hokusai. Interwoven jersey and leather sweaters recall the armor of Japanese warriors. Evening dresses gleam with Noh theater gold. Delicately crafted obi belts become the fabric of tapered trousers. Handbags and clutches are decorated with Kabuki masks. This year’s cruise collection also pays tribute to designer Kansaï Yamamoto, who paved the way for an entire generation of Japanese designers by presenting his work in France with a fashion show in Paris. Yamamoto is well known for having designed most of David Bowie’s costumes. He has now created icons, symbols, and characters for Louis Vuitton bags and accessories. The caps are the work of designer Kristopher Haigh, founder of the 1K brand. Actresses Rila Fukushima and Doona Bae will open and close the fashion show.

Light is to architecture what sound is to music.” (Steven Holl) At the two ends of the spectrum of light control and transmission stand transparency and opacity. Translucency inhabits the broad middle ground between those two. The word “translucent” is derived from the Latin “trans“ ("through") and “lucere“ ("to shine"). Translucent surfaces permit the passage of light while visually obscuring what’s behind it. Historical examples of the use of translucency in architecture abound: the poetic sliced alabaster window above the main altar in St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, the shoji (screens) at the Katsura Villa in Kyoto, the stained glass rose windows at the great Chartres Cathedral in France. And there are countless others. Translucency promotes ambiguity, a sense of mystery and a complexity that allows for multiple understandings of what a space can be. In the video I review examples which illustrate the power of this ambiguity as well as the practical things you need to know when employing translucent materials in your project. Additionally I cover: - What impacts the color of glass - Walls, floors, stairs - Material properties and options - Using transparency to imbue a design with meaning (be sure to catch the last project in the video) Architects in the video: Steven Holl Architects Steven Miller Design Studio Studio Carver Architects, Inc.

Gion remains dotted with old-style Japanese houses called machiya, which roughly translated means "townhouse", some of which are ochaya or tea houses. Architecture varied across the Gion district.

Kyoto Station is the most prominent transportation hub of Japan”s ancient capital of Kyoto. It is accepted as one of the largest railway stations in the world and considered to be the most striking. The giant futuristic glass structure replaced the old Kyoto station, which burned down in 1952. The new Kyoto Station building was designed by the architect Hiroshi Hara and was constructed to celebrate the 1 200th anniversary of the foundation of Kyoto as the Heian capital. Hiroshi Hara (原 広司 Hara Hiroshi, born 9 September 1936) is a Japanese architect and author on architecture. His major works, including Kyōto Station, the Umeda Sky Building in Osaka, the Yamato International building in Tokyo, the Sapporo Dome in Hokkaidō, and other important structures in Japan, have earned many awards. With a doctorate in engineering, he was a professor at the University of Tokyo until 1997, and has held an emeritus position since that time. Photographs and Editing were done by me. I hope you enjoy it. :) Transcend de Audionautix está autorizado la licencia Creative Commons Attribution (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Artista: http://audionautix.com/ Touchpoint de Audionautix está autorizado la licencia Creative Commons Attribution (https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/) Artista: http://audionautix.com/

Capsule hotel, ancient city: sleeping in a Kyoto pod for $40

In the late ‘70s, Metabolist architect Kisho Kurokawa (designer of the Nakagin capsule tower) dreamt up “a hotel for 2001”. The idea was to do away with rooms and implement simple crawl spaces for sleeping. Today the capsule hotel concept is well-known in Japan. Originally popularized by businesspeople who missed the last train, these sleeping pods have been given a sleeker makeover. Located near Kyoto’s Gion (the traditional geisha district), 9 Hours has re-developed the capsule concept befitting the iPhone generation: the pods are minimal, functional and easy to use (thanks to the icons on the walls and floors). The *faircompanies family spent a night in these affordable ($40/night) pods and found these sleep crawl spaces (220 cm long by 108 cm wide and high) surprisingly spacious (even for sharing with a toddler).
