Landslide

Landslide is designed according to the principles of Japanese tradition
of making tea. In this tradition, the observability of
nature and seclusion are a major determining factor. Because of this there is
chosen to climb the pavilion along a path over Mount Ogura
with the intention of leading the tourists away from the
overpopulated regions of Kyoto to create a certain tranquility.
Furthermore, nature was seen as an essential element in the conceptual
phase of the design, in order to form a unity between
pavilion and surroundings.

The idea of the design is to incorporate the instability of the Japanese nature and tectonics by looking into the phenomenon of landslides. The chosen site on Mt. Ogura is a place where several landslides shaped the landscape creating slopes and specific views without trees. This space is incorporated in a way that it almost feels like a originally square and even construction got tilted during such a moment. Creating a feeling of instability by the tilted roof but also incorporating the slope into the staircase as a metaphoric interpretation of relative instability of the Japanese mountains.

The construction of the pavilion is created out of a rigid timber frame that is tilted in a angle and fastened into the bedrock. The roof consisting out of polycarbonate sheets and low weight timber will get suspended on the timber frame resulting into an almost floating construction on the mountain hill.The construction of the pavilion is created out of a rigid timber frame that is tilted in a angle and fastened into the bedrock.
