Strategies in the Wild

2008


This project two hours away from Tokyo led us to ten hectares of remote wilderness.

 

The fingers of relentless suburbanisation in the Tokyo-Yokohama metropolitan area are stretching more and more into the surrounding wilderness of Japan’s hinterland.

 

We were approached with an interesting idea: A network of remote pieces of land, just within reach of a two-hour drive from central Tokyo, in proximity to villages that are ageing so rapidly that many of them are beginning to become abandoned, should become places for immersion into the wild, reconnecting with nature and the people of the many places that are still feeding Tokyo’s urbanites.

 

The first piece of land were 30 hectares just two hours southwest of Tokyo. We were asked to devise strategies for 20-25 individual plots for people who’d engage in such a concept.

 

Instead of following the often-found replication of urban homogeneity in the country, we suggested site-specific strategies that work from the bottom up to find new types of living.

 

The site is divided following strategies of the curious opportunist: First, occupy the site’s hotspots, and, with upper and lower limit for occupancy set, let the distances between the occupied hotspots follow naturally.

 

Plot lines are not drawn a priori but likewise emerge over time, demarcating the median and thus maximum privacy between neighbouring occupied points.

 

At the centre, a communal place provides the necessary infrastructure to allow the individual plots to be as free or filled with clutter as desired by their owners. Where in the conventional countryhome-setting an overload of un-necessities results in a homogeneous environment of replicated suburbia, we proposed a diversity of lightness: The specific rather than the generic, the specialised rather than the all-comprising. The individual plots are thus freed from the unnecessary and given the opportunity to explore the specific: A diverse network of hammock, dance studio, atelier, tree house, hair salon, cooking room, workbench…

 

東京都心部から二時間離れた三万坪の自然との暮らしの計画。

偏在する別荘地開発における都市の均質のコピーではなく、その土地の特殊性の分析から生まれるボトム・アップ戦略で新しい暮らし方を提案していく。

土地の分割方法はトップ・ダウン方式ではなく、現地の様々な特徴を生かす戦略で動く。 隣同士で最適な環境を作るデザイン過程の中で、それぞれの敷地の境界線は徐々に現れてくる。
