About Ao-re Nagaoka, Nagaoka

City halls tend to be grand looking but boring places, stately buildings where the governing is done and from where civilians usually stay away. Notso here. When constructing Ao-re, the architect KengoKuma had a very definitive aim in mind: to create a meeting place for citizens in an warm and inviting ambience. To this end, rather than use traditional brick and mortar, they made used of local cedar to create an unusual checkered interior wall, a frontal garden extending from inside the building to the street outside. Moreover, he put the city council chamber on the ground floor, so the people could better connect with their government. You will rarely find a civic structure more beautiful, more elegant. 1.2 million people visit it every year… just to hang out.

  • 冬の時期、イルミネーションをやっています!とても綺麗です。そして、クレープやまという移動販売のクレープ屋さんが、たまにアオーレ長岡にきます。他にも、中央図書館などにもきてるみたいです!クリームたっぷりで、最後ということでミニクレープをサービスしていただけました!

  • 市の施設と体育館、役所、商業施設の複合体。いろんな人がいろんな目的で気軽に集まれる場をイメージして作られ、その通りに機能している。隈研吾さん設計。
