How will our Housing and Community change with WITH / AFTER new Corona Virus Pandemic(COVID-19)?(2020)

WITH/AFTERコロナ 住まい・まちづくりはどう変わる?

Telework has spread rapidly with the spread of the new coronavirus infection. While the spread of telework has revealed various merits, it also highlights issues related to living space. In the future, as telework becomes more familiar, a living environment that integrates work and housing will be required, and the degree of freedom in choosing a place of residence may increase. For the era of WITH / AFTER Corona, we will think about how to live, work, enjoy and live while teleworking in Osaka, and think about Osaka as a city to live with.


And yet Humans Share Spaces with Others (2020)


Architectural practitioners have actively proposed a share as a way to enrich their dwelling. However, now that the new-coronavirus (COVID-19) sickness has made us aware that the share is two sides of the same coin with the risk of infection, we can still see what people want from the share. At this symposium, we first reconsider the meaning of various shares being tried in the field of architecture. Then, we anthropologically ask what share is, and draw out the future of whether share continues to promote the disparity in housing, or how the practice of housing can play a role in correcting the disparity.

Let’s think about the way of Jizo-Bon adapted to the times (2019)


“Jizo-Bon” is a precious event where multi-generation of cho-community exchange each other. In Kyoto, there are areas where Jizo-Bon continues to be devised, such as by collaborating with welfare facilities and university students to address issues such as a reduction in the number of players and participants. Let’s learn about these cases, exchange opinions among participants, and join together to give tips on community revitalization, such as how to increase the number of players.

Symposium: Learning from visionary architects(2019)

日本建築学会比較居住文化小委員会シンポジウム 幻の建築家たちの教え

時の試練を経た集落は格好の教科書、その構想者は会うことが叶わない幻の建築家――居住を取り巻く状況が急速に変化している現代においても、いや、むしろ現代においてこそ、フィールドに出向くと多くの学びがあります。しかしフィールドワークは名人芸に近く、定まった方法論はありません。そこで比較居住文化小委員会では、名人たちが何を考え実践してきたのかを広く伝えるべく、16 名の濃密なインタビューと直筆のフィールドノートをまとめ、書籍「建築フィールドワークの系譜:先駆的研究室の方法論を探る」を出版しました。
本シンポジウムでは、本書で取り上げた中から 4 名をお呼びします。第一部は、世界的建築家かつ先駆的フィールドワーカーである原広司氏と古谷誠章氏の講演です。フィールドに何を求めて旅立ち、どのような調査を行ない、その成果が設計の実践にどうつながったかについて解説します。第二部ではこれを受け、布野修司氏が建築計画学の視点から、陣内秀信氏が建築史学の視点から、フィールド研究のトップランナーとしてコメントします。その後は、比較居住文化小委員会のメンバーも加えたパネルディスカッションです。以上の講演と議論を通じて、フィールドワークの現代的な意義をあぶり出します。

The future created by continuous fieldwork (2019)

日本建築学会比較居住文化小委員会 拡大委員会 継続的建築フィールドワークが拓く未来:ベトナムにおける研究の展開、プロジェクトの発生、フィールドの変化

Although Vietnam adopted the Doi Moi policy in 1986 and started working on cooperation with the international community, fieldwork by Western researchers was still rare. In 1994, a comprehensive survey of the townscape of Hoi An’s old town in central Vietnam was conducted. Based on this experience, the field has been expanded to other cities in Vietnam and other countries, but fieldwork in Hoi An continues every year. The possibility of fieldwork is considered from the development of research and field changes due to continued involvement in the field for over 25 years.
