nebuta-no-ie warasse ねぶたの家 ワ・ラッセ · construction update | 10/09/01

molo has designed a permanent building dedicated to the history and living culture of Nebuta inspired by the profound spirit of Nebuta and the beauty of the four seasons in this region. Twisted ribbons made from steel surround the whole building. At points they are swept aside to create openings and all are angled to emphasize particular views and to catch light. The red colour is influenced by the local lacquer ware and smoothly coats the steel in a very similar way. sANH.20100827 02 nebuta no ie warasse ねぶたの家 ワ・ラッセ ·  construction update | 10/09/01

長 さ12メートルの鋼製リボンからなるスクリーンはこの建物 全体をつつみ、日中から夜への光や影の変化を映し出す屋根付 きの通路となります。合計820本のリボンは それぞれ形状や曲げ方が異なり、その隙間から採光や展望が得られ、人の出 入口としても利用されます。さ らにスクリーンには冬の冷たい風や夏の強い日光を防ぎ建物を守る効果もあります。このス クリーンは、青 森周辺のブナの原生林にみられる光と影が織りなす縦の模様をイメージにデザインされました。鋼製リボン のスクリーンは深い朱赤の錆色の風格あるつやを持ち、青森市の活動の盛んな海岸沿いの風景に大胆かつ自 然に調和する 色です。
