Building summary

Kikuchi-shi center city area is town with close scale which former cityscape remains. It does well after the war as hot spring sightseeing spot, and hot spring is important resource now with waterway around town. We made point of walker network which by maintaining there some parks, surrounded machinakao on foot and were going to bring about flow of new people. We established hydrophilic function using hot spring and waterway water in two parks which we maintained each and planned so that it was got close as place of interchange, stay of people who visited.

Kiriake Park is located in the place becoming entrance of town. Water collected in the ground which became hollow with nature and established three shallow basins which it was easy to get close to in water and hot spring which drew enacted lake and pond into motif from waterway. In addition, we located public toilet and bench which we assembled on iron plate on the pavement that hardened white stone (we look like stone and rock) to cause a person's movement.

 

Kiriake night

We placed alley park as daily park for inhabitants to be in residential area. Under the theme of a person's flow and interchange, "bank" which we bend pipe and piled up forms footbath, public toilet bench. Bank becomes guide of a person's movement and activity and describes design such as whirlpool in the whole site. In addition, we planted tree with a few crabs which were town, and green remained in impression in conjunction with pavement that hardened green stone.

 

Alley night

It plans to be able to rotate on foot round and round and is doing the park to connect the movement to surround which park momachinakao on foot.

Comment from designer, Takao Shiotsuka

Takao Shiotsuka

Takao Shiotsuka/Takao Shiotsuka atelier

Kikuchi pocket park maintenance business began in October, 2008 and finished design after workshop and symposium with inhabitants in March, 2010. Afterwards, we start construction last year (2011) in November and push forward construction for completion of this March.


Kikuchi-shi center city area is town with close scale which former cityscape remains. We make point of walker network which by maintaining there some parks, surrounds machinakao on foot and are going to create flows of new people. It is two places that push forward construction and arranges hydrophilic functions such as footbath or waterway each and plans so that it is got close again as oasis of local resident as place of interchange, stay of people visiting.


In Kiriake (the drill end) park, water collects in the ground which became hollow with nature and creates primitive scenery that there was by public toilet bench shelter reminding of three basins and stone and rock.

While "bank" which we bend pipe and piled up forms footbath, public toilet, bench under the theme of a person's flow and interchange in alley park, it is guide of a person's movement and activity and describes design such as whirlpool in the whole site.

We are going to have as all link that you go round towns on foot, sense Kikuchi bodily.

 
Kikuchi city area pocket park aimed at creation of space of encounter aspect-like as oasis of local resident again as place of interchange, convection of person who came and was planned with main points of walker network.
Facility maintenance that there is characteristic that there is contact with culture of Kikuchi including hydrophilic functions such as footbath or waterway and natural <water> is expected.
