Course description
We will design a complex facility centered around a library that will serve as a base for citizens' cultural activities. The functions required of libraries in the future will be vastly different from those of traditional public facilities, which simply had books lined up and a reading room. It is expected that it will serve as an information infrastructure necessary for local residents to lead an intellectual life, and at the same time function as a place for mutual interaction and dissemination of information.
The site is Kiyosumi 3-chome, Koto Ward, where the Koto Ward Fukagawa Library currently stands. It could be rebuilt at the current location of the Fukagawa Municipal Library, or it could be rebuilt at the park plaza or children's park to the east. Alternatively, the project could be planned on a long, narrow site facing the Sendai Hori River across the road. If we were to rebuild the current Fukagawa City Library, we would consider where it would be most appropriate to rebuild it, not only from an architectural planning perspective, but also from an urban planning and construction planning perspective. I would like to have it.
I would like to see the facility plan include comprehensively incorporating local public service functions, such as the Fukagawa Fureai Center X Hirano Children's Center, located adjacent to Kiyosumi Street. We hope that the new library will contribute to the sustainable development of the region by combining the functions of childcare support, youth activity support, civic activity support, and lifelong learning functions, becoming a comprehensive living base for the region. .
Although the current Fukagawa City Library is located adjacent to Kiyosumi Garden and Kiyosumi Park, it is hard to say that the plan is spatially integrated. It is expected that the new library will be designed to be functionally and visually linked to Kiyosumi Garden.
Purpose of class
Students will have the ability to consider the social issues faced by local communities and the future of public facilities, where new functions are being sought, and to present solutions to given design issues through architectural design and landscape design. Acquire. The aim is to help students understand architecture in relation to its surrounding environment, and to think about spaces that move people through the fusion of design and technology.

Design condition
・Site: 3-3-39 Kiyosumi, Koto-ku, Fukagawa Library, Koto-ku (Details are posted in the shared folder)
・Related laws and regulations:
Zoning, building coverage ratio, floor area ratio, etc. must comply with the current city planning regulations.
Koto City Urban Planning Master Plan
  Koto Ward Long Term Plan (Late Period)
Koto Ward Public Facilities Comprehensive Management Plan
Respect local town development policies and public facility maintenance policies, such as:
・The current legal provisions of Fukagawa Library (3-3-39 Kiyosumi, Koto-ku) are as follows.
・Site area: 1251.39㎡, Building area: 741.57㎡, Total floor area: 2196.61㎡
・Floor area ratio: 175.52%, Building coverage ratio: 59.25%, Zoning: Class 1 residential area
・Planned scale area
The Fukagawa Library has a collection of approximately 200,000 books (as of the end of March 2017), but in consideration of the increasing digitization of books in the future, it is planned that the facility will not be used for at least several decades after construction. As a premise, consider the required area and make a proposal.
Goals and objectives

Goals and objectives Course Outcomes
1. Think about what public facilities should look like in the future from both a functional and operational perspective, and come up with your own ideas.
2. Ability to consider and propose ways to expand the functions of the library and contribute to the local community.
3. The ability to understand the environmental characteristics of the surrounding area, consider the future, and design buildings.
4. When designing, it is possible to carefully understand the location of the site and think about the design based on a concrete image from the user's perspective.
5. Based on an understanding of basic architectural techniques, students can create expressive design drawings.

Class schedule

Class schedule HW assignments (Including preparation and review of the class.) Amount of Time Required
1. Site analysis, program consideration, design intent, layout plan/floor plan

・Each person will survey the site and create a document (A3) with photos of the site and surrounding area pasted onto a map.
・Case study: Conduct on-site surveys of several libraries and compile the drawings (plan/cross-section (elevation)) etc. into an A3 report.

By noon on the day of the Esquis every week,
① drawings, ② sketches, ③ model photographs, ④ documents describing design intentions, etc.
Please compile it into a single PDF file and submit it to the [designated folder for Spatial Architecture Design Exercise 4].

Please name the PDF file as [student ID number_name].
*The above is common to S-Kice Checks 1 to 4.
