Design Statement:
It is our design proposal of university campus facilities scattered in an urban area. The facilities and buildings of Johsai university Kioi campus are spread over several heavily populated areas close to Kasumigaseki and Nagatacho, the center of the Japanese government in Tokyo. It is almost impossible for universities located in central Tokyo to have an open space just like campuses in the suburbs. It is also inevitable for them to utilize their facilities efficiently because the land cost is extremely high. Under these circumstances, the challenge for the client is to keep necessary class rooms and create places where their students can spend free time effectively and efficiently. As our solution to the tough home work, the cafeterias and libraries are designed to be also used as a place of learning commons. The corridor has several alcove-like small places where students can meet and spend time together. The places to which the floor area ration regulation is not applied such as the outside terraces, roof tops and semi open spaces like Pilotis are built all over the campuses. The total floor space is limited due to the regulation, but these innovated places contribute to widening students' activities. These places are linked each other. The facilities and buildings are integrated into a network. where students can join, meet, spend time together as they wish.
