feature: go hasegawa 特集: 長谷川豪

This edition of a+u is dedicated to the works by Japan-based architect Go Hasegawa.The issue introduces 19 works from his very first project House in a Forest, completed in 2006, to the latest completed works Yoshino Cedar House and Chapel in Guastalla – with newly taken photographs – and the projects in progress both in Japan and abroad.Throughout his career, Hasegawa has focused on the spatial dimensions, gravity, and time perceived by a person. With his works of varying sizes and uses – be it a small hut in a forest, a house in a dense urban neighborhood in Japan, or a plaza in a metropolis – he challenges the preexisting ideas on largeness/smallness, heaviness/lightness, and newness/oldness and seeks in them values that had not been recognized previously. The essence…

essay: amplitude in the experience of space – spatial dimensions, gravity, time / エッセイ: 空間の経験とその振幅 -- 空間の大きさ、重力、時間 --

Go Hasegawa長谷川豪Ducks and HutsWhen the wild ducks or the wild geese migrate in their season, a strange tide arises in the territories over which they sweep. As if magnetized by the great triangular flight, the barnyard fowl leap a foot or two into the air and try to fly. The call of the wild strikes them with the force of a harpoon and a vestige of savagery quickens their blood. All the ducks on the farm are transformed for an instant into migrant birds, and into these hard little heads, till now filled with humble images of pools and worms and barnyards, there swims a sense of continental expanse, of the breath of seas and the salt taste of the ocean wind.... The barnyard duck had no notion that his…

row house in ageo 上尾の長屋

Saitama, Japan 2014日本、埼玉 2014Evening view of the northeast facade.北東側ファサードの夕 景。View toward the entrance from the living room on the second floor.2階リヴィング・ルーム からエントランス方向を見る。Section detail (scale: 1/50)/矩計図(縮尺:1/50)A two-storey, wooden duplex for two families, located in a residential suburb of Tokyo. Looking at the houses in the surrounding area, the curtains were drawn shut in all of the windows and the yards seemed cramped, despite the relatively generous dimensions of the sites. The approach for this house was to place the house in the middle of the site with a yard of the same dimensions, and to cover it with deep eaves. Door and window openings can be opened on both sides. Twelve large, 2×2 m wooden sashes are arranged symmetrically on each elevation, and the windows, which open both left and right, span…
