The Hamadori area that suffered the nuclear accident. Ten years after the Great East Japan Earthquake, it is still in the process of reconstruction. Will this problem, which will be passed on for hundreds of years, be passed on correctly in the future?
What can we do to bridge the division between future generations who do not know about the time of the accident and us who have experienced disasters?
We must continue to talk about the accident at that time, even if what we know at that time is incomplete. As an architectural student, to share this memory, I predict the future in 10, 50, and 100 years on the premise that the decommissioning work will be completed in 100 years and the site of the nuclear power plant can be reused.
Visiting the site and feeling the air in order to know about the accident is important in designing an architecture that will not be forgotten. In order to design a place that can only be felt in Fukushima, we read the memories of this place and sublimate them into an architectural space. This design method is named Fukushima-like design method, and five buildings that are reflected in each space and are not forgotten at the site of the nuclear power plant are designed.
What will you see and feel when you visit here 100 years from now?
