Kamaishi Flower Building Project

2012.8 - 12



This is a conversion project of a abandoned building in Kamaishi, Iwate prefecture. The site(abandoned building) is surrounded by park preparation land, our proposal is to reuse this building as an observatory. Connecting each floor by big stair case, people may wander from ground floor to the roof top, programs like cafe shop or offices were set in-between the circulation. Normally pergola’s (small structure, shelter )in the park are the local communication spaces, when disaster strikes, these pergolas became meeting space and prevention area. Since the building is located in a residential area park, the structure is quake-resistant as well, so we had this conversion proposal for the existing building.
