a+u 2017:01 Feature: Go Hasegawa

The January 2017 issue of a+u is dedicated to the works by Japan-based architect Go Hasegawa. The issue introduces 19 works from his very first project House in a Forest, completed in 2006, to the latest completed works Yoshino Cedar House and Chapel in Guastalla—with newly taken photographs—and the projects in progress both in Japan and abroad.

Throughout his career, Hasegawa has focused on the spatial dimensions, gravity, and time perceived by a person. With his works of varying sizes and uses – be it a small hut in a forest, a house in a dense urban neighborhood in Japan, or a plaza in a metropolis – he challenges the preexisting ideas on largeness / smallness, heaviness / lightness, and newness / oldness and seeks in them values that had not been recognized previously. This issue presents the detail drawings – newly created for all projects – in the order based on their structural types: wooden → wooden + membrane → wooden + steel → steel → RC → stone.

We invite our readers to explore the thinkings of Hasegawa who – through intensive inquiry on spatial dimensions, gravity and time – strives to expand the possibilities of architecture.
