Midterm review (Michiko Sugawara)


This time, I focused on the floating power of water as a proposal for the dangers of water and the coexistence of humans. Not only do you look at the water visually,

By visualizing the invisible force of water, which is the floating power , through the operation of the architecture, I will be always aware of the danger of water.

The plan is to take in the river water between the foundation and the top, attach a chain to the top pillar, and float the slab up and down. Furthermore, I thought that floating power  can be visualized more by the coexistence of sinking and floating things.

Since there is no floating power when the water does not flow in, the space can be used together.

but when the water flows in, floating slabs and sinking slabs are created, and the space becomes difference. In addition, the sunken slabs will float and the relationship between the slabs will be replaced depending on the water adjustment.

In addition, depending on how the water is stored, plants and flowers that have sunk may float up on the water surface, and visualize the floating power while using a landscape. Also plan to let.

Reference regarding floating power

I thought that human body would normally feel the floating power that works on the slab, and that a new way of coexistence between water and man would be born.

collage about floating power

In the collage, I assumed that floating power was working in Venice.This collage performs two operations.The first , place is where the man in front is on the ship, but the ship that originally floats in the water floats in the air and looks at Venezia from above. This indicates that the way of looking at space is reversed by making the ship more emphatically floating power.Also, as the second operation, the city of Venezia originally made a floating city by putting a pile under the building, but in this picture it is really floating Venice.
