Entrance like a raw silk / 2016 / Finalist

Proposal for the renovation of the citizens’ lobby on the west side of the first floor of the Kobe City Hall Building. Rather than a mere renovation of the lobby space, we wondered if it would be possible to propose a renovation that would connect the city of Kobe and update other spaces at the same time. Specifically, we created a new entrance on the west side of the building so that the city hall can be accessed from anywhere, east, west, north, south, and west. The roof is made of square pipes. In consideration of sunlight, square pipes are set up and fixed in place as they deflect under their own weight to create a structure that is both a soft raw silk-like monument and a sunshade louver.
