Morioka City, Iwate
[Development project for Morioka City’s first roadside station, rest stop and service area]

The project is organized using axes aligned towards two significant mountains of Iwate Prefecture: Mount Iwate and Mount Himekami. A village-like atmosphere is created by using timber from the forests of Shibutami, a town within Morioka City which is the hometown of the famous poet Takuboku Ishikawa.
