Saitama Prefectural University
This is a university that specializes in nursing and welfare. The aim of its education is to develop the talent who will take leading roles within local communities, where close mutual cooperation will be essential. To achieve this goal, we conceived an architecture that can traverse the framework of conventional faculties and departments, instead of completing or closing each faculty/department. Therefore we proposed one single volume.
Starting from one volume, the plan had many problems to be solved with regard to each specific area, but our solution makes the correlation of each element of the whole architecture seem as clear and systematic as possible. As a result, the architecture becomes the landscape as if the foundation of a city appears as architecture.
