Outline

The Tsugaru Dam is located in the entrance of the Shirakami-Sanchi World Heritage Region. It was developed to protect people living in the Iwaki River basin. We designed the dam body and the various associated facilities through a consistent examination system, with a design thought to aim at a scenery creation in accordance with natural environments. When making the dam body, we designed the curved piers as overhanging terraces in order to harmonize them with the soft, kind image of a beech forest. Furthermore, we placed many viewpoints around the dam and allowed visitors to make excursions.
