Taketa Castle Town Plaza

竹田市城下町交流プラザ

Oita, Japan

Community center
272.51 m2

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.
