NPO "Doujo of architecture and art" holds

 "gallery IHA residential architecture award 2020"

Announcement of the event


 At the "Doujo of Architecture and Art", we would like to discover residential architecture that can be created in the future, or residential architecture that has not yet appeared in existing media. In recent years, residential architecture has become very interesting to me. The introduction of commons, overcoming the boundary between "public and private", architecture in cycles, sustainable lifestyles, new challenges to "wooden architecture", and ways to unravel the relationship between the architecture and the local community have all increased the density of architectural thinking in recent years. We would like to discover a variety of challenges in residential architecture. Please feel free to apply. (Itsuko Hasegawa)
