Outline

For the environment of the faculty of international studies, we took a design approach to “socialize (globalize) the educational environment”. Blank spaces made by a zigzag layout of seminar rooms allow voids and space to be cornerstones. The continuous voids create vertical connectivity and are eco-void. A wooden lattice on the east facade provides shade and phytonciede while demonstrating the possibility of using wood in middle-high-rise buildings. Beyond the concept of rooms and floors, we aimed to create an atmosphere where the whole space is connected to sensation by fluid air and scenes.
