Japanese architects, Archilab, Orléans

Surface its nest in the city ": under this title sore, Archilab, in Orleans, celebrates this year the creativity of the Japanese architects. About thirty of them are exposed on three sites, at a rate of two or three achievements per agency, of the houses especially, some museums and stores. It is, are not afraid of the words, an exceptional unit presented in a magic way.
It is not the first time that Archilab makes discover with the French the creativity of the young Japanese architects, but it was in general drowned in an international soup avant-gardist, of which the most interesting moments were often leaded jargonneuses considerations and pedants. The achievements are, this year, exposed and explained sobrement, methodically.
In the old building of the Subsistence, principal site of the demonstration, each agency has its space, separated from floating partitions. A certain flexibility was left to the thirty elected officials: they are joined together by the whiteness and the lightness of their models, sometimes “furnished” until the guard with this semi-serious semi-play spirit which one finds only with the country of Sun-Raising.
The majority of the buildings were built in Tokyo, some in Kyoto or Osaka, seldom further. Sown in the fabrics composite of these cities, whose panorama covers the blank walls with the Subsistence, they are démènent with grace to exist, have fun, surprise, and are accepted by the buildings which dominate them or the houses which enclose them, but without jealousies.
The way in which the Japanese architects draw small houses, around 100 m2, seems the result of a been obstinated formal research. It starts with the generation of the modern architects and the “metabolists” (Kenzo Tange, Fumihiko Maki, Kiyonuri Kikutake), sometimes shaken by bursts of laughter nervous. It is pacified by Tadao Ando - it was to build the Pinault Foundation in the Seguin island, then destroyed by the crisis of the years 1990 and the earthquake of Kobe.
Three agencies, mainly, took the changing. Shigeru Ban, which builds the antenna of the Pompidou Center of Metz, explores the hidden solidity of the most fragile materials, while the ex-duet formed by Kazuyo Sejima (author of the future Louvre de Lens) and Ryue Nishizawa, at one time joined together with the sign of SANAA, invested the misadventures of the most contemporary materials to renew, starting from the envelope, the design of interior space.
These architects are, in this register, the successors of the third renovating one of the Japanese writing, Toyo Ito, which has just completed the Cognacq-Jay hospital, in Paris. The Ito, oldest but not most worn (it was born in 1941 in Korea) of these creators, is introduced in solo in the “hangar” of the FRAC Centre. Four achievements with through it seems to want to make live its buildings (the media library of Sendai, Tod' S Omotesando, in Tokyo), with the risk of flirter with the old twaddle of architectural organicism and fascination for the proliferating metaphor of the shells (the park of relieving of Torrevieja, Spain, in construction).
For the time being, the majority of the architects present at the Subsistence not anchor in a register more simply ludic, sensual, aesthetic, which makes building, an independent being able to run on its legs, but a prolongation of the man, the inhabitant. A geometrical and often very technical thingummy, which would be an element light, static, intermediary between worn clothing and the load-bearing wall. But there is as, here or there, of the weight, gravity, the secrecy, and even the gymnastics of the overhang, a leitmotiv of rising generation indicating as architecture did not lose the use of its muscles, even of doping. Let us note that a French hides within these Japaneses: the Manual architect Tardits, one of the four partners of the Mikan agency, which collaborated in the realization of the Cognacq-Jay hospital.
Terunobu Fujimori, to which was entrusted the house of Biennial of architecture of Venice, is also present in Orleans. It is a player and a scientist who will seek, in the the least known Japanese traditions and of the materials which one believed forgotten, reasons to perch its houses of tea in the trees. Joined Fujimori, one nothing imagination moreover, the high-speed motorboat of Archilab, Kengo Kuma, which, occupies a broad space with the Saint-Vincent Square to him. As its declared objective is “to erase architecture”, and that it does it with a rare force and a refinement, we will leave him his share of shade here, by wishing that each one go to discover it in the marvellous constructive labyrinth which Archilab offers to us.
