BUS TERMINAL AND TOURIST CENTER IN YAMANAKAKO VILLAGE
BUS TERMINAL AND TOURIST CENTER IN YAMANAKAKO VILLAGE
Japan

This is a pilot project for an industry-government-academia regional redevelopment of Yamanakako Village. The regional hub regenerates a flow of people, tourism industry and local community network with a triangle wooden grid system formed by the new narrative landscape.

Triangle wooden grid system integrates different elements in the local landscape. The 1st axis of triangle is pedestrian circulation between north-south area. The 2nd axis links views between Mt. Fuji and the local symbol tree in North KOMINKA area. The final one is an axis comes from surrounding roof ridges direction. This grid can be a platform for micro renovation by local residents according to dramatic social change. This grid sews long-middle-short distance landscapes and different time. In addition, the gradational thermal condition is created with different opening conditions as outside bench, deck, canopy, glass box and intimate inside rooms. This designs an extendable activity area according to different number of bus passenger and tourist between winter and other seasons.

Japan is the leading country happening the social changes of depopulation, aged society and new local government system. Therefore, our team is interested in discovering “Identical grid system” reading local context and supporting future lifestyle. The system of“Identical triangle wooden grid”reading local history and landscape generates new local activity.

“micro public network” can reconstruct local community and economy.

The “micro public network” is a method of reconstruction for small village. That is networking with micro scale buildings in a whole area. The network is created by innovative technology, like IT, Automatic drive, Drone and New economy. This method can update local landscape and history as a future lifestyle platform with sequence of gradual and small developments.
