Outline

This project built a school after the Great East Japan Earthquake as a community hub in a newly constructed urban area. The school faces the main street linking the railway station and town hall and is shaped like a rectangle, The center is a courtyard. Gatherings can be seen from outside, encouraging use of the space and enlivening communal activities. On the 2nd floor, four classrooms form a square, A central steel pipe and wooden beams create an umbrella-like structure. There are seven of these structures that gather solar energy. The roof's curves create a harmonious townscape.
