Japan 2020Taketa Castle Town Plaza
This community center in the middle of Taketa is designed using burnt cedar and bamboo. With its central location, it functions as a node for the walking network in this castle town.
The building is designed as an outdoor stage, facing a square. The proscenium, which is a three-dimensional assembly of bamboo, not only serves as a backdrop for events, but also symbolizes the new character of Taketa, where modernity and history exist in harmony.
