DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Tokyo Pop Lab, Monsters in a Jar

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Multifunctional Cultural Center

INSPIRATION:
Tokyo pop lab is a multifunctional building that aims to combine the traditional oriental architecture with the contemporary japanese culture. The project uniquely inverts the traditional model of a contained exhibition space by distributing media throughout the primary public space - the circulation surrounding the differentiated volumes. Within each of the distributed volumes, academic functions including classrooms and a lecture hall, are contained.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
"Monstern in a jar" is a civic pavilion, interrupted variously by hoisted volumes destined to discrete and localized, academic and cultural activities. Below and in-between these floating volumes, urban life extends seamlessly into the building. Through an open, and carefully considered plan, the scheme establishes an urban, public forum to exhibit, celebrate, discuss, and debate, the popular culture in its various forms.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Tokyo Pop Lab can be described as a civic pavilion, interrupted variously by hoisted volumes of discrete, localized activity. Below and in-between these floating volumes, urban life extends seamlessly into the building, perhaps resembling most closely the precedent of a colonnade or piazza. Through an open, and carefully considered plan, the scheme establishes an urban, public forum for popular culture. The project uniquely inverts the traditional model of a contained exhibition space by distributing media throughout the primary public space — the circulation surrounding the differentiated volumes. Within each of the distributed volumes, academic functions including classrooms and a lecture hall, are contained. Rather than assume a singular or limited expression, the proposal establishes a forum to exhibit, celebrate, discuss, and debate, the ebb and flow of popular culture in its various forms of expression through thoughtful programming of public space. Tokyo pop lab is a multifunctional building that aims to combine the traditional oriental architecture with the contemporary japanese culture. The project uniquely inverts the traditional model of a contained exhibition space by distributing media throughout the primary public space - the circulation surrounding the differentiated volumes. Within each of the distributed volumes, academic functions including classrooms and a lecture hall, are contained.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The main challenge was to design a public space with a great mix of functions, which could be the symbol of japanese pop culture. A culture so different and distant from the western one, and in a city already rich in landmarks.

CHALLENGE:
"Monstern in a jar" arises from an in-depth search for the cult of pop japanes from art to kitchen, rich in unique characters and objects, from the study of traditional japanese architecture known for its elegance and the use of natural materials, and not least from the study of contemporary cases of architectures distinct from cultural use.
