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.

  • 何年も前の話。月1金曜午後に弁護士さんに無料で30分相談を利用した時、前の相談者が時間を5分オーバーしてから私でした。それなのにこちらは23分ほどで追い出されるように退出させられました。「次の人が待ってるんだよ❗」と凄い目付きで睨んだ職員のオッサンが忘れられず、いい印象がありません。建物と雰囲気は好きなのですが。

  • 建築は良くも悪くも隈研吾。 これといった工夫はなく、全国どこにでもある隈作品。 正直、飽きた・・・ 高評価の理由は、ミニシアター。 4K映像だかで花火大会のムービーを観た(通りがかりだが、おそらく常設展示)。 どうせ子供だましだろうと涼んで休憩がてら観たのだが、すっかり感動してしまった。 その後、わざわざ商店街にある花火大会資料室に足を運んでしまった。 広いエントランスではなんやらイベントをやっていたし(隈の木っ端は飽きたが、間口の広さの良さは認めよう。分とく山のように初期は狭さがウリだった気もするが)、いいところですね。
