A spring of Awaji Island: Awaji Yumebutai 2


 The Westin Awaji Island

< 1. The Westin Awaji Island >

This time, I introduce the world of architect Tadao Ando.

 今回は、建築家安藤忠雄氏の世界を堪能します。

Originally this ground was the wasteland that construction sand had been extracted from.

Planner made it the park that is full of nature blending in with the surrounding green and a flower.

Furthermore, a greenhouse plant garden, an international conference hall, a hotel, an open-air theater, some restaurants, and shopping area were also held.

Although the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake hit this region just before its groundbreaking, at the moment, many people are visiting through the year. 

Mr. Tadao Ando performed the whole idea and architectural design.

It is a very unique large park.

 

この地は、元々は建設用土砂が採取された荒れ地でした。

それを緑と花に彩られた自然豊かな公園にしたのです。

さらに温室植物園、国際会議場、ホテル、野外劇場、レストランとショッピング街も併設されました。

着工直前に阪神・淡路大震災に見舞われましたが、現在、年中多くの人が訪れています。

この全体構想と建築設計は安藤忠雄氏が行いました。

実にユニークな大公園です。

The bottom of the beach is covered with 1 million shells of scallop.

Various fountains in this large beach start to dance on each place.

 

水の底には100万枚の帆立貝の貝殻が敷き詰められている。

広いこの浜の到る所から噴水が踊り出します。

The greenhouse of the front is “ the Miracle Planet Museum of Plants”.

正面の温室は「奇蹟の星の植物館」です。

The circumference of the oval yard of upper photo is a restaurant area.

上図の楕円形ヤードの周囲がレストラン街になっています。

 

water, sky and concrete 

< 7. water, sky and concrete >

The cylindrical space consists of a spiral, white, black, and blue.

 Next time, I look down from heights.

 

螺旋、白と青、黒が織りなす円筒の空間です。

次回は、高台から見下ろします。
