Japanese garden «Body LandSpace» in Orleans, France

Invitado como joven arquitecto japonés a la 7ª edición de ’Archilab 2006 Japon’, propusimos un jardín japonés en oposición a los modos de pensarlos como: "Estilo francés" o "estilo japonés" - "Sentir con los ojos" o "sentirse con el cuerpo" - "Movimiento" y "aspecto".

I have been invited to the 7th edition of ‘’Archilab 2006 Japon’’ as Japanese Young architect.
We planed Japanese garden with opposing thinking method like,
«French style» or «Japanese style»
«Feeling with the Eyes» or «Feeling with the Body»
«Movement» and «Aspect»

«French style» or «Japanese style»
The site of our design is two existing planted zones, located to the north and south of an area found within the compound of ArchiLab. The constraints related to the existing context were quite numerous. We could have designed a place, with the atmosphere of a French garden, by imposing an artificial geometry with disregard to the existing context. We chose, however, to think of a Japanese garden, which celebrates the changing of the seasons, and which could re-discover the identity of the existing site, consider it from a different perspective, and explore its full potential. On the beginning of the design processes, we cut the trees which lack life to make the vigorous fascination of new landscape.

“Watching with the eyes» or «Feeling with the body”
The existing site is considered as a stage, which brings trees and flowers forward into view. Each planted element is isolated and acts like a discrete object.   The ground has been covered with white sand and the vertical surfaces have been covered with bamboo trees, creating a unified landscape within the surrounded area. This landscape is designed to invoke multiple sensations. From a visual appreciation of the planted object, we are moved into feeling the Space with our entire body = Body LandSpace.

«Movement» and «Aspect»
Groups of mirrors have been placed in the white sand in a checkerboard pattern. The movements of the visitors transform the aspect of the mirrors, creating an interactive relationship. Seen from far away, the mirrors resemble » solid objects», like the large rocks often found within a Japanese garden, because of its form. From mid-distance, they look like one continuous »surfaces» which are floating on the ground, because of checker pattern and shadows under the mirrors. Up close, they become pixel-like, mapping different images of the existing site because of different angles of each mirrors.

The visitor find out new landscape composed of the map images of the sky, trees, existing buildings and the real image of white sand and trees.
