    The characteristic of Kon, Wajiro "Nihon No Minka"(1922) is "common" houses featured in it. In this research, we restored and revisited the sites where they have been remaining, so that we could analyze the factor and transformation of private houses for about 90 years. In conclusion, we could acquire some perceptions in the following. 1) The term of investigation performed by Kon was divided into some different parts. In addition, there were the methods of selecting houses. 2) The transformation of houses has been affected by the policy of national land reform. 3) There're some common factors caused from situations in each houses. 4) The survival of houses is connected with situations whether owners have stayed or not.

     View Summary

    Many Japanese carpentry guide-books of the Edo Era and the Meiji Era contain explanations of kiku-jutsu, a traditional Japanese method of building guidelines used for wooden construction. In this article, the items of those books are classified into several groups in order to illustrate the transition that kiku-jutsu has made over the Edo and Meiji Periods. Our survey makes it clear that kiku-jutsu in the publications of the Meiji Era emphasizes a geometrical character which is seen not only in the roof shapes of traditional Japanese buildings but also in the roof shapes of the Western style buildings. Yet, though the works vary through the Edo and Meiji Periods, the basic foundation of kiku-jutsu is based on the kiku-jutsu of the Edo Period.

  • Study the influences of ethnic Han and ethnic Bai on Jidi village’s modern Tibetan dwellings in Shangri-La, China

    Yiling Hua, Norihito Nakatani

    Journal of Asian Architecture and Building Engineering   22 ( 6 ) 3320 - 3337  2023  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Chinese ethnic dwellings have recently undergone numerous changes under the influence of economic growth, thus provoking discussions on the relationship between traditional inhabitation and modernization. This paper aims to investigate the effects of modernization on Tibetan residences from the perspective of Shangri-La’s unique multi-ethnic cultural milieu. The research was undertaken in Jidi Village, a traditional Tibetan settlement where the Matsutake industry has enabled residents to reconstruct traditional Tibetan structures by upgrading the local economy. Floor plans and section maps were drawn and analyzed based on a survey of residential buildings in Jidi village. Variations in construction and living situations were confirmed after interviews with Jidi locals. The results indicate that the horizontal distributions of Tibetan residential houses gradually transformed into a courtyard style in the past decades. Furthermore, we concluded that ethnic Han affected contemporary construction materials of Tibetan, whereas ethnic Bai influenced the architectural layouts and designs of architectural components through artisans’ techniques. This study emphasizes the need to cultivate ethnic craftspeople, such as Tibetan artisans in the Shangri-La region, whose numbers are declining due to modernization.



  • Historic conservation in Tibetan region amidst rapid urbanization: a case study of Dukezong Old Town

    Yiling Hua, Norihito Nakatani

    Journal of Asian Architecture and Building Engineering    2023  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    Rapid economic growth in China has resulted in the revitalization of historic Chinese ethnic towns, impacting their spatial and renowned integrity. This study focuses on Dukezong Old Town (Domkhar Rdzong), a traditional Tibetan settlement in the southernmost Tibetan cultural region, to examine its historical revolutions under modern urban renewal. The study begins by highlighting the historic significance of the “Rdzong” to establish the core essence of Dukezong as a Tibetan traditional Rdzong-Shan settlement. Furthermore, spatial-dynamic analysis was conducted to demonstrate how the urban construction process has contributed to the diminishing presence of “Rdzong.” The findings indicate that urban renewal efforts in Dukezong have accelerated the deterioration of its historic urban form and diminished its original residential function. Drawing from Pre-existing Theory, strategies are proposed that involve preserving Rdzong’s traditional space without physical objects and sustaining Rdzong’s residential function to reinvigorate Dukezong’s distinctive cultural heritage. This study emphasizes the significance of recognizing a region’s historic significance, functions, and urban morphology in revitalizing historic towns inhabited by ethnic minorities. Moreover, it offers valuable insights into the relationship between urban preservation and renewal in other historic towns.

  • THE FORMATION PROCESS OF THE REGIONALISM VIEWING FROM THE DESIGN POLICY OF PEOPLE'S COMMUNE: Analysis on the case of planning of Weixing commune, Suiping county, Zhumadian city, Henan province

    YU Fei, NAKATANI Norihito

    Journal of Architecture and Planning (Transactions of AIJ)   86 ( 780 ) 649 - 656  2021  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    <p> As the continuation of the research on the People' Commune, it has been discussed about the regional planning in the former paper, this paper will focus on the detailed architectural expression and the residential planning. Just like the former paper, the paper also takes the Weixing Commune which is the first funded People's Commune as the research object and tries to make it clear how the architectural expression was showed out in the design of People's Commune under the influence of Soviet which was the main source in the trend of thought in 1950s.</p><p> At first, through the introduction of the ideological trend of architecture around 1950s, we can find that under the ideology of Communism which somehow acted as a political issue, the field of architecture continued in the status of ideological confusion from 1950s. The designers of Weixing Commune from South China University of Technology also cannot escape from the overall situation which was the common phenomenon in China. They took lots of strategies to cater to the ideological trend. Though there was no definitive answer to this issue which was related to the problem of artistic conception, they started to focus on the practical stills like architecture construction. By analyzing the residential planning, we find that they tried to use the Soviet model to the commune. Moreover, when it turned to the detailed architecture design of the Commune Center, they implanted the elements from both the Modernism and Socialism Realism generated from Soviet, which was the dominating idea of 1950s in China. This study concluded that under the influence of concept of "traditional Chinese curved roof" which was generated from Socialism Realism in architecture, a newborn Regionalism finally emerged in China.</p><p> In conclusion, under the prevailing idea of Socialism Realism and Modernism in Architecture which run through ideology and a strong current of nationalism appeared in the field of architecture of China, architects of this case did try to put forward their proposals of the Chinese National Style and finally changed the route of design from 'Form' to 'Reality', which entirely contributed to the formation of the Regionalism in rural China through the movement of People's Commune.</p>

     View Summary

    This study aims to grasp the process of modernization in rural China during a period of social transformation that saw the overlapping of Communism and Modernism. Founded in 1958, Weixing Commune was the first funded People's Commune and a group of architectural professionals participated in its design. The analysis of the concept and planning method of Weixing commune clearly indicates that, when facing the task of designing the commune in the 1950s under the communist ideology, the design group tried to adapt the concept of modern urban planning from the west.

As the precious legacy of the practice of Marxism, it has been researched in a broad range of fields like History, Sociology, Economics and so on. However, in the field of architectural history, the research on the People's Commune still remains a state of blank.</p><p> The Weixing Commune is known as the first funded People's Commune in 1958 in which a group of architectural professionals from South China University of Technology, which is one of the early-funded architecture school in China whose main staff completed their studies from the western world once took part in the planning and design of it. This paper tries to figure out how they planed the People's Commune, where was their design concept from in the period of social transformation overlapped between Communism and Modernism in 1950s.</p><p> Through the analysis of the proposal, this study made it clear that facing the new design topic under the ideology of Communism which somehow acted as a political task, the design group tried to use the idea of Neighborhood Unit put forward by an American planner named Clarence Arthur Perry, which is one of the most important concept of modern town planning in 20th century and adjusted it in some way fit to the rural villages to accomplish the spatialization of institution.</p><p> In conclusion, under the prevailing idea of Modernism in Architecture(1950s), the architects of this case did tried to put forward their proposals in the Commune planning. In the movement of People's Commune proposed by the Chinese government at that period, most of the Chinese architectural professionals just like the design group from South China University of Technology, did tried to use their knowledge of architecture to change the traditional villages, which somehow acted as a great chance for China to accept the idea of Urban Planning and Moderism architecture from the western world.</p>

     View Summary

    The purpose of this study is to reveal the fundamental contradiction between the order and the spacial environment of pirates. This study is mainly based on a book about English pirates of the 17-18th century, &quot;A general HISTORY of the Robberies and Murders of the most notorious PIRATES&quot; by Captain Charles Johnson, 1726. Pirates were predatory tribes, which lived only by piracy and also did not make nor form families. Therefore, it was especially important that the pirate laws functioned to satisfy the awareness of equality. One reason is that a pirate ship could not attain a spacial resolution for equality due to its structure. On the other hand, the ship was able to act as if it had just a single will. Thus, the pirate crews achieved freedom within the laws of equality. As long as they were able to perform piracy nomadically, they did not require to have a base ground. Pirates are one of the case groups being contrasting against a &quot;nuclear family&quot;. The final goal of this study is to find the whereabouts of the fundamental problems of &quot;nuclear family&quot; and its housings.

    Miyake Riichi, Tashiro Kazui, Ouchi Hiroshi, Kim Sungwoo, Kim Changdon, Yatani Akinari, Inoue Keiji, Nakatani Norihito, Kagawa Hiroshi


     View Summary

    The Korean Diplomatic Mission dispatched to Japan by Lee-dynasty Korea in the course of Edo Period (17-19th centuries) promoted a tremendous scale of urban planning combined with event-oriented facility planning. A series of diplomatic facilities called &quot;Gochisojo&quot; can be reconstructed based on the existing buildings and historical documents, and will be the core for the future cultural promotion. The purpose of this research is to analyze the historical process of the diplomatic facilities in Japan and the Japanese colony in Pusan called &quot;Wakan&quot; where the representatives of Tsushima-han negotiated with Korea on diplomatic matters including the mission, as well as to give the reconstruction of these facilities from the point of architectural and urban history. In particular the comparative study on both Kaminoseki in Yamaguchi Prefecture and the Wakan in Pusan will clarify the meaning of mutual architectural heritage of Japan and Korea. In Kaminoseki, the Ochaya (villa) was created as a guest house at the beginning of Edo Era to receive the mission , the whole town became a diplomatic center in order to accommodate both Korean and Japanese envoys which exceeded 1,000 people. Iwakuni-han had to renew the planning on each occasion of Korean visits according to the prescription made by Tsushima-han. The Wakan in Pusan was constructed in the second half of the 17th century and provided the Director&#039;s Pavilion (Kanshuya), the Market House (Kaiichi Daicho), the Guest House (Daicho) and so on in an extremely vast area. Beyond the stone wall of this colony, Koreans constructed the Guest House (Heksa), the Banqueting Hall (Yondechon) etc. to receive the Japanese Mission. The building type of this Wakan was the mixture of the Japanese samurai-residence type and the Korean guest house type. This unique type was created as a result of the joint operation of Japanese-Korean architects and craftsmen. The reconstruction based on the existing architectural plans and maps led to the fact that these buildings were the fundamental elements to formulate the landscape and townscape. The reuse of these buildings as well as the reconstruction of the lost facilities will contribute to the regional promotion based on this unique and rich architectural heritage.

     View Summary

    The purpose of this research is to develop an evaluation method that contributes to long-term sustainability, by extracting the position of Village considered last over a thousand years in Japan from the geographical name, which we called "Millennium Village", and analyzing sustain factors by field survey.
    As an outcome, about 2,800 places are plotted, which considered as the candidate of "Millennium Village" , based on the the place name described in an old documents. The plotted map is available by internet. Also, in order to elucidate the factors of sustainability, we visited nearly 200 candidate Millennium Village in Kanto and Kansai, and we conducted detailed field survey for each different topographic environment. As a result, a regional evaluation list was proposed, which consists of 4 items: <environment> <regional management> <traffic> <village structure>, and an authentication system, which certifying that the area is sustainable, was established and given to the public.

  • 日本近代,明治期を中心とした伝統大工技術の展開,変質についての調査研究


     View Summary

    本研究は伝統的な建築技術の特性を踏まえたうえで,なお明治以降の時代的文脈,ならびに日本国内にかかわらずより世界的な場所における日本の伝統建築技術の具体的な展開とその意味を明らかにすることを目的としている。申請者はその基礎的研究として近世からの架構技術が明治以降にも応用展開された領域である規矩術を分析対象とした。規矩術とは,特に納まりが煩雑をきたす軒廻りを曲尺(さしがね)によって把握,計画する技術である。公刊規矩術書が近世末期から流布しはじめ,近代以降を通じ和洋を問わず広く施工者層に流通していた事実は,近世から近代の連続面を考える上で多くの点を示唆するものだからである。 1995年度はまず現存する近世から明治にかけての規矩術書のリストアップならびに収集に努めた。国会図書館発行の『国会図書館蔵書目録明治期第4編』中「建築」の項で該当しうる書籍の約半数(80件程度)を複写した。現在その3割をゼロックスとして,残りをマイクロフィッシュとして整理保管している。 次に収集した上記文献をもとにして,今年度の主眼である規矩術の幕末から明治にかけての変遷過程を整理,分析を行った。それらを巨視的に扱うために,規矩術書の内容をその目次構成を中心として整理分析した。具体的には幕末期規矩術の代表的著作の言及対象を分析しその項目構成を明らかにし,次に明治以降規矩術書に上記項目構成を当てはめて分析し,明治期における規矩術書の構成の変遷を明らかにした。と同時により詳細に分析した場合,扇軒を代表とする特定様式に付随した規矩術の形骸化・多角形割ならびに振れ軒,多角形軒等の西洋建築を含む各種様式を通じて,より応用性の高い項目の普及が,明治以降規矩術を全体的に把握した場合における特徴であることを明らかにした。明治以降規矩術はその形式的継承性を保持しながらも,近代の新しい文脈に対してより実践的な性質を持つようであったように見受けられる。伝統的技術の近代における継承的変質の問題を考える際に規矩術書研究は有効な史的対象であるように思われる。 来年度においてその継承的変質の具体的詳細,あるいはその主体となった著書-規矩術者自体の分析を行う予定である。
