The sequence by four rusty steel plates
Hokibara Yota, Japan
Reversing under the bridge
In these days, architecture has already extinct. In this project, I considered how it could be caused, and be made alive continuously. Of the two sites given this time, I selected the Tolbuhinsky bridge, because the site has longest straight line and strongest axiality. And also has river, forest, historic buildings.
1. Stage to embark river and Bridge Pier Rusty steel plate to match the slope of the bridge, and turning up. 2. New bridge Suspended The new view overlooking the bridge from various levels by one piece of rusty steel plate which describes the catenary curve. Bridge is a aliving sculpture in the city itself. 3. Stage of Floating on River Stage overlooking the «river», bridge have been abstracted. It can be perceived the bloodline of nature which is perpendicular to the infrastructure. 4. Steel Tower to confront historic buildings Steel tower located at the boundary points that the river and bridge piers and earth comes in contact with the ground. against the bridge extending horizontally, vertical monumentality is added.
