clip Yusuhara Wooden Bridge Museum

  • Address: 3799-3 Taro-gawa Yusuhara-cho, Takaoka-gun, Kochi Prefecture, KOCHI, Japan
  • Latitude: 33.38731
  • Longitude: 132.94387

This is a plan to link two public buildings with a bridge-typed facility, which had been long separated by the road in between. The museum technically bridges communications in this area. It functions not only as a passage between the two facilities but also as an accommodation and workshop, ideal location for artist-in-residence programs. In this project, we challenged a structural system which composes of small parts, referring to cantilever structure often employed in traditional architecture in Japan and China. It is a great example of sustainable design, as you can achieve a big cantilever even without large-sized materials.
