AZUMA HOUSE TADAO ANDO PDF

He divided in three a space devoted to daily life, composed of an austere geometry, with the insertion of an abstract space dedicated to the play of wind and light. His objective, he says, was to challenge the inertia that has invaded our everyday lives. Ando , who sees himself as a fighter-architect, developed a series of brave proposals for small houses. For it, he received an award from the Japanese Association of Architecture in Location Located in Sumiyoshi, a district in central Osaka , Japan , replacing one of the traditional wooden-built houses of the area.

In the middle of this working class neighbourhood full of odours of everyday life stands a mute wall. From the end of the s to the early s, Ando as an architect was engaged in a struggle to create ample living spaces on narrow sites.

It was a struggle to establish his identity as an architect while wrestling with complex factors- such as tradition and modernity, the desires and the limited budgets of clients, the exigencies of everyday life and the demands of aesthetics in a city that still retains a strong Asian quality. Ando, who sees himself as a fighter-architect, developed a number of bold proposals for small houses. It is also a house in which characteristics of his subsequent work are already evident. We see an axially symmetrical composition, an overall form having a gatehouse-like character and a doorway in a central location.

In the design of the elevation Ando uses only two rectangular forms: the overall outline of the building, and the doorway. From the drawings, we can also confirm that the entire site has been designed and divided longitudinally into three parts and that the courtyard too has been divided into three equal parts. Tripartition is applied to the building as a whole. Tripartition and axial symmetry are generally regarded as compositional rules of classical architecture.

Although there are no columns here, many will probably judge this wall to be of the Doric or Tuscan order. What makes this building appealing is the way a simple geometrical design produces an extremely rich spatial experience. Note, for example, the stairway in the courtyard.

We turn left at the front entrance, enter the courtyard, turn o degrees to ascend the stairway, turn o degrees once more, cross the bridge and arrive at a bedroom at the far end of the second floor. Geometry and Plan A complex circulation plan transforms a simple geometry into a rich spatial experience. The courtyard of the Row House in Sumiyoshi is a secluded space cut off from the commotion of the city; it is open only to the sky.

The courtyard is a window, accepting light, wind and rain so that nature is able to seep into the spirit of the observer. When we stand in the courtyard and look up at the stars in the night sky, the mute walls frame the landscape and we are made aware of the flow of air and intimations of the changing seasons.

That is because the courtyard, made of concrete, glass, and slate, reflects incident light and causes complex shadows. Haiku is a highly concise, traditional form of Japanese poetry, often having a seasonal theme.

For the family the space becomes much larger than its mere physical extent. It becomes a world in miniature. Matter has a psychological effect on the observer precisely because the absence of ornament invites extraordinary empathy.

A place of nothingness is in the very nature of Japanese culture. Ando introduces a concrete box amidst the dilapidated wooden row houses that crowd the central areas of Osaka and creates a highly self-sufficient living space inside that box. Ando ensures individual privacy, something traditional town houses were unable to provide; he creates a residential space that enables modern individuals to develop.

For Tadao Ando , architecture can be a weapon for social reform. You may also like

Samular That is the reason why it is said that the azumz of Tadao Ando are the maximum expression of the Japanese sense of beauty. The open patio, surrounded by walls of concrete, glass and slate, reflects the natural light and creates complex shadows. Crossing over the entranceway, you turn to the right to access the living room, from the living room to the patio where you turn again to reach the staircase which takes you to the upper floor or go straight ahead to arrive at the kitchen and bathroom. The factor which makes this patio so unique is that there is no way to cross to either side of the house without going outside; without coming into contact with nature.
