From the architect. This is a plan to link two public buildings with a bridge-typed facility, which had been long separated by the road in between. The museum technically bridges communications in this area. It functions not only as a passage between the two facilities but also as an accommodation and workshop, ideal location for artist-in-residence programs. In this project, we challenged a structural system which composes of small parts, referring to cantilever structure often employed in traditional architecture in Japan and China. It is a great example of sustainable design, as you can achieve a big cantilever even without large-sized materials.

I can hear the screams of the engineer from here. Amazing though.

Stephen · February 17, 2012

The bracket systems developed in Japan and China were in response to the seismic activity. Wood is inherently flexible and the lattices wood allows the structure to dampen the overall affect of an earthquake. However, I am not sold on the single pier. That's the weak point. There is an interesting base on the pier that may be some sort of base isolation (as seen here http://mceer.buffalo.edu/infos....

Very interesting opinion Stephen! People like you make the "comment section" worth reading.

vahid torabi · February 17, 2012

realy nice..
but I'm worried a bit about the resistance of structure against earthquakes.

moon · February 17, 2012 08:57 PM

don't worry at all, the structure looks like a dougong, used in traditional japanese and chinese architecture, which are very resistant to earthquakes.

lala · February 17, 2012 03:36 PM
