Hilarious Shibuya Station

PRESENTED ON SEP 27, 2017
IN TOKYO @ VOL 150

"In 1885... there were no commuters, no interconnections, and no Hachiko, just a horse."

In Hilarious Shibuya Station from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 150, Architect Keisuke Tamura shares his studies of the complex spatial structures of Shibuya station in the form of physical models.

The fruits of his labor having been summarized in books and exhibitions looks passed the stressful nature of these gigantic train terminals to showcase their brilliance and fascinating appeal.

田村圭介は建築家としての活動のかたわら、渋谷駅の複雑な空間構造とその変遷過程を研究し、それらを模型の形で表現をしてきました。その成果は展覧会にて発表され書籍にまとめられ、対象は東京駅、新宿駅まで及んでいます。プレゼンテーションを聞けば、いつも使っているストレスフルな巨大ターミナル駅がとても面白く見えてくるでしょう。

York Station

BY MEG THOMAS
@ VOL 14 ON NOV 28, 2017

In "York Station" Meg Thomas explores the signs and interactions that are normally overlooked a journey through a station. She highlights the commercial takeover of the public space, and the way the passenger is de-prioritised in station design. The hyper-reality of the station space is twisted as the audience is invited to also follow a silent visual story. This undercurrent covers the personal emotions that are digested and processed as a background to everyday life.

Telling Architecture (the Hidden Stories of Buildings)

BY ABIGAIL HURST
@ VOL 39 ON APR 27, 2019

Writer and Registered Architect Abigail Hurst founded her own local practice in 2018, Tell Architecture Ltd, in order to combine her architectural education and training with her passion for writing. Abigail aims to design buildings that tell stories and write stories that Tell Architecture to help people comprehend, discover and connect to spaces, buildings, and cities. Abigail will relate a series of buildings personal to her, and the stories of how they have shaped her life. This journey will lead you to her practice today, and a proposal for a fresh way of telling the hidden stories of architecture, through the intersection of two disciplines: drawing and writing, to bring meaning and richness to our lives.
