Tanikawa House 秋茶会


軽井沢にある篠原一男のTanikawa Houseでのお茶会に参加した。個人の邸宅ということもあり、長らく未公開の建築で、一般公開されたのは竣工以来今回がはじめてらしく、あまり使われていない時期もあり、竣工当時のそのままの姿で現存しているという。

説明によると、Tanikawa Houseとは、1974年、谷川俊太郎氏が一編の詩を建築家篠原一男氏に託して建てられた北軽井沢の別宅、とのこと。









"Tanikawa House Autumn Tea Party"

The architecture shone brilliantly in the forest.

I participated in a tea party at Tanikawa House by Kazuo Shinohara in Karuizawa. It may be a private mansion, and it has been unpublished for a long time, and it has been open to the public since it was first completed, and there are times when it has not been used so much.

According to the explanation, Tanikawa House is a separate house in Kita Karuizawa, built in 1974 by Shuntaro Tanikawa entrusting a single poem to architect Kazuo Shinohara.

The feature of this house is that it is built on a sloping ground and has a sloping soil where the slope appears continuously in the house. The soil is 9m wide from north to south, has a drop of 1.2m, and is covered with volcanic ash. It seems that Shuntaro Tanikawa was supposed to hold various events in the space.

In addition, a thick pillar with a 45-degree cane was placed between them to emphasize its existence.

Also, since the roof starts at an angle of 45 degrees from a height of about 1 m from the ground, it becomes the impression that only the roof is on the slope, all the appearance impression is the roof, the material of the roof is colored silver Because it was a galvanized iron plate, it shone in the woods, and its brightness was slow.

The overall impression is that a silver roof is built on the slope, a thick pillar supports it, the wall partitions the exterior and interior, and the slope is exposed as it is between the indoor soils, emphasizing the structural elements of these buildings As a result, the form of the architecture was strongly launched, and the architecture was in its original form and was majestically settled in nature.

However, it was mysterious, and its strong architectural form made a presence in nature, and it was well adapted to nature.

I don't know why, but I was very attracted to its strong architectural style.
