Introduction In the Advanced Design Studies Program (T—ADS) at the University of Tokyo’s Department of Architecture, cities are conceptualized as “ecosystems” where culture and economics intersect in a complex way. In April 2015, T—ADS established the Design Think Tank (DTT) research organization, a collaboration with NTT Urban Development Corporation and Shinkenchiku. DTT’s current focus is on a region of Taito ward which encompasses Misuji, Kojima, and Torigoe neighborhoods (nicknamed “Mikodori”). In its first ever exploratory community event, pursued in collaboration with Mikodori residents, DTT is pleased to announce Tsugi Tsugi (One by One) #1: Cycling, Side Dishes, Rice, and Craft.

Concept The Mikodori area is a place that lives and breathes craft culture; where specialists produce as-yet unfamiliar creations. It will be the hub for this exploration. 1. Ride community-use bicycles for free (regularly available for rent). 2. On Okazu Yokocho (Side Dish Street), free rice and kenchin (vegetable) soup will be given to the first 150 people to arrive. There will be additional side dishes to enjoy on local shopping streets. 3. On Craft Street, participate in a creative experience with a local craftsman (fee required). 4. Take pictures of interesting locations as you wander through the old town area. 5. The first 100 people to upload a photo to the project website will get a free hot drink (in front of Okachimachi and Kuramae stations)! One by one, we aim to reveal the hidden charms of the Mikodori area. Join us for this fun exploration!

Event Details: February 4 (Sat) 12:00-17:00 Free community cycle use Rice + Kenchin soup (first 150 people) Workshop in Monozukuri Yokocho (fee required)

Lecture: Bending Rules: Protocols of Error Speaker: Kristof Crolla, Architect, Assistant Professor (Chinese University of Hong Kong, School of Architecture) February 1, 2017 (Wednesday) 14:00-16:00

Kristof Crolla is a Belgian architect who combines his architectural practice Laboratory for Explorative Architecture & Design Ltd. (LEAD) with an Assistant Professorship in Computational Design at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, School of Architecture (CUHK). He both trained and taught at the Architectural Association School of Architecture, London (AA), and worked for many years for Zaha Hadid Architects. In 2010 he moved to Hong Kong where his academic research and office work focusses on the strategic implementation of computation in architectural design. He is best known for projects such as ‘Golden Moon (Hong Kong, 2012)’ and ‘ZCB Bamboo Pavilion (Hong Kong, 2015)’, which internationally received over two dozen design awards and accolades, including the G-Mark (Japan), Architizer A+ (USA) Awards, and most recently the 2016 World Architectural Festival Award – Small Project of the Year 2016, nicknamed «The Architectural Oscars».

This lecture uses Kristof Crolla’s recently built work in China to illustrate how the deliberate introduction of project-specific material and construction idiosyncrasies, such as limited onsite skill, accuracy, budget and time, into the digital workflow can facilitate materialising unusual and ebullient architectural outcomes from minimal means.

Current evolutions in computational design are radically expanding the design solution space available to architects. In principle, these trends should permit the more straightforward implementation of non-standardised, geometrically complex architecture. Yet, since the digital entered the architectural scene, it has by-and-large encountered non-digital cultures not through authentic dialogue, but through subjugation. As a result, a disjunction has manifested between the opportunities the virtual offers and their real-world implementation. Especially in developing countries, this divide reveals itself in the difficulties the non-standard often faces in dealing with onsite restrictions and unpredictabilities, and is apparent in the discordance between available digital and onsite craft.

In search of an alternative contemporary mode of architecture practice, the work presented from LEAD and CUHK illustrates the surprisingly poetic outcomes possible in contexts notorious for their building quality.

JAPANESE JUNCTION: December 12, 2016 – January 13, 2017

Nikken Sekkei bldg.

Tokyo, Chiyoda, Iidabashi, 2-18-3

Tokyo in(di)visible hypothesizes to make current the perceptions of space as defined under opposing terms of interior/exterior and precise/uncontrollable. Through a networked field of architectural prototypes, an exterior space can be created and defined as a function of the evolving environmental conditions in which it is situated, removing undesirable airborne particles as a by-product of the enhancement of exterior qualities.

東京大学建築学専攻Digital Fabrication Lab(DFL)では、建築施工におけるデジタル技術の活用をテーマに、毎年実験的なパビリオンを制作しています。単に技術による自動化や高度化を目指すのではなく、そこに「人間が関わること」の可能性を探る実証の場として、これまで「人間と機械が融合した3Dプリンター」(2014年STIKパビリオン)や「巨大3Dペン」(2015年TOCAパビリオン)を建築スケールで再現してきました。

本年Computational Clayプロジェクトでは「人間が関わること」をより一層推し進め、個性としての身体パフォーマンスを建築表現に反映させるため、人の動きと素材と関係に着目したユニークなパネル加工システムを開発しました。

Every year in the University of Tokyo’s Digital Fabrication Lab (DFL), digital fabrication technologies are used to produce an experimental pavilion project. The aim, rather than being simply to achieve automation or precision through use of such technologies, is to explore the potentials for human and machine collaboration. Past projects have focused on fusions between humans and machines through the use of 3D printers: the 2014 STIK Pavilion explored this theme through guided aggregation, and the 2015 TOCA Pavilion by using humans as a parameter along with an oversized 3D pen.

This year, in the Computational Clay Pavilion, we advance the role of the human in construction one step further, examining how an individual’s capabilities and performance can be expressed in an architectural output. We have developed a unique panelized construction system wherein the movements of humans and their relationship to the material are explored.

john wardle this building likes me lecture the university of tokyo advanced design studies

Lecture: This Building Likes Me Speaker: John Wardle November 15, 2016 (Tuesday) 18:30-20:00

John Wardle, one of Australia’s leading architects, explores the ways buildings weave together landscape, history, memory, and materials. John Wardle Architects (JWA) has gained a reputation for creating buildings that connect to their surroundings in subtle yet powerful ways. The work ranges across scales: from small-scale domestic dwellings, to large commercial projects and major university buildings, most recently, Melbourne’s Conservatorium of Music. Collaboration is ingrained in the those of the Melbourne-based office, a spirit that extends to working closely with builders and craftsmen in the realization of their projects. Materiality and intense detail are constant interests, both for their aesthetic and experiential qualities and for the values they embody, as Wardle writes: “The care shown in how materials are employed, tells a story about the value that a community places in its built environment.”

This lecture coincides with the launch of This Building Likes Me – John Wardle Architects, published by Thames Hudson

Princeton University School of Architecture hosted a joint workshop in New York with visitors from the University of Tokyo between October 28 and November 6. The workshop is part of a strategic partnership program between Princeton and UTokyo, and was initiated by Princeton Professor Jesse Reiser and University of Tokyo Associate Professor Yusuke Obuchi. The aim of the workshop is to create opportunities to exchange architectural knowledge between cultures and universities.

The first workshop in this initiative was held in 2016 in Tokyo. Participants had the chance to meet and engage in discussions with master Japanese architects such as Fumihiko Maki, Arata Isozaki, and Hiroshi Hara. The October workshop represented the US-hosted portion of the partnership, and the content focused on Steven Holl, Bernard Tschumi, and Thom Mayne. Five students from the University of Tokyo participated (two PhD, one master, and two undergraduate). Each student received seminal essays written by each focus architect, and then had an opportunity to discuss them in a preparatory seminar before visiting the architects’ offices and conducting interviews. Students also visited buildings in New York and Princeton designed by the architects.

Admission for the 2017/2018 academic year is now open. Applicants must complete both online and postal submission of documents.

東京大学の建築学科にT_ADSという新しい場所を作りました。縦割りに分割されてズタズタになった、二十世紀の建築界をつなぎ直したいという思いで、このT_ADSを作りました。 まず、デザインする人と、物を作る人とが分裂していました。デザイナーは、かっこよさばかりを考えていたし、作る人は作りやすさと、お金のことばかりを考えていました。作る人の中も、ズタズタに分割されていました。構造体を作る人、インテリアを作る人、それぞれが自分の都合、自分の利益だけを考えて、人間のことを忘れていました。 デザインする人達もバラバラでした。形をデザインする人、構造計算をする人、積算をする人、みんなが自分の領域の中だけでの最適化をめざしていて、全体のことは忘れたふりをしていました。建築の外側にある地域環境のことは、もっと忘れていました。 そんなバラバラにされた断片を、もう一度つなぎ直そうというのが、T_ADSの目標です。つなぐためのノリとして、コンピュータに活躍してもらいます。コンピュータという小さな武器を媒介にして、建築の世界が再びひとつになることが、T_ADSの目標です。建築の世界がひとつになるだけではなく、建築と庭の世界がひとつになり、建築と都市がひとつになり、建築と地球がひとつになることも、T_ADSは夢みています。 そうなれば、T_ADSは建築学科に属している必要もないし、東京にある必要もないかもしれません。実際のところ、すでにT_ADSには、世界中の、様々な人間が参加しはじめています。そういう新しい場所の空気感とリアリティを伝えるのが、この展覧会の目標です。 (隈研吾)

We’ve made a new place in the Department of Architecture at the University of Tokyo. It’s called T_ADS, and with it, we hope to help reconnect the architectural community, which split during the twentieth century.

First, we saw a split between people who design things and people who make things. Designers only thought about creating nice aesthetics; people who made things only thought about money and how to make things easily. Even among people making things, there were divisions; structural engineers, people making interior spaces, etc. Everyone was concerned with their own interests and their own profits. The human element was forgotten.

Designers were divided too. Form designers, structural designers, surveyors; everyone aimed to optimize within their own fields of knowledge, and turned a blind eye to the bigger picture. Outside of architecture, the community environment was even more forgotten.

Reconnecting these fragments is the aim of T_ADS. We use computers as the “glue” to achieve this. Our hope is not only to make the world of architecture unified, but to also make architecture and landscaping, architecture and cities, and architecture and the earth unified.

If we can do that, T_ADS will not even need to belong to the Department of Architecture, and perhaps may not even need to be located in Tokyo. In fact, a variety of people all around the world are already a part of T_ADS. The aim of this exhibition is to share the spirit and the reality of what this new kind of “place” feels like. – Kengo Kuma

Used coffee grounds are collected from Tokyo’s coffee shops. The grounds are aggregated and solidified into components before being used as odor-absorbing architecture to transform alleyways.

使用済みのコーヒーかすを、東京のコーヒーショップから収集します。コーヒーかすは硬化してコンポーネントとし、匂いを吸収する建築として路地空間に使用します。

Used coffee grounds are the raw material for the proposal. There are many coffee shops in Tokyo, and these grounds could be aggregated on an urban scale to produce a new resource.

使用済みコーヒーかすを原料とします。東京には多くのコーヒーショップがあるため、これらのかすを都市スケールで集積し、新しい資源とします。

The coffee grounds, when collected, are solidified and created into a component. The components are organized together into box-like formations to create architecture.

コーヒーかすは集められた後、硬化させ、コンポーネントになります。コンポーネントは、建築を形成するために、箱状に積み上げられます。

The architecture creates a unique gathering space that intends to transform Tokyo’s alleyways.

この建築は、東京の路地を有効に活用するためのユニークな集いの空間を生み出します。

The architecture, in addition to being visually interesting, is also odor-absorbing due to the coffee content of the proposal. This aids in creating a more pleasant experience in alleys.

この建築は、視覚的に興味深いだけでなく、コーヒーかす素材によって匂いを吸収します。このことは、路地での経験をより気持が良いものにするのに役立ちます。

Waste food at convenience stores is collected and transformed into a bioplastic material. This bioplastic can be used to create architecture.

コンビニエンスストアで廃棄食品を収集し、バイオ・プラスチック素材として再利用します。このバイオ・プラスチックを建築で使用します。

Waste food collected from convenience stores is collected. A large amount of food is wasted every day at Tokyo convenience stores and the waste has potential as a resource.

コンビニエンスストアから集めた廃棄食品を活用します。毎日、多量の食糧が東京のコンビニから廃棄されており、資源としての可能性があります。

The material is transformed into a bioplastic which hardens after a period of time.

材料は、一定の時間が経つと硬化するバイオ・プラスチックに変換されます。

The bioplastic is used with a 3D drawing pen and architecture can be “drawn” by a user.

バイオ・プラスチックは、 3 D描画ペンによって用いられ、ユーザーが建築を「描く」ことができます。

The project proposes a use for waste food and in creating the temporary architecture, produces a community gathering space.

このプロジェクトは、食品廃棄物の再利用した仮説建築によって、近隣コミュニティーの人々が集まることのできるスペースを提供します。
