BY OSAMU SAKAI
@ VOL 152 ON NOV 22, 2017

Architect Osamu Sakai along with his wife, also a designer, helped save a public housing complex from demolition last year in the town of Sakura, Tochigi Prefecture. They’ve since established a cafe and community center in a corner of a housing complex that, after renovating, they are now tasked with activating by curating gatherings, activities, and workshops to harmonise with local environment and community. In this presentation Osamu will suggest how projects such as their cafe can help to find solutions to problems many rural cities in Japan face, such as population reduction, traffic congestion, and beyond.

建築家酒井理さんはデザイナーの奥様と一緒に、栃木県さくら市の団地集合住宅の一角をリノベーションして、地域の交流発信基地となる素敵なカフェを運営しています。自然や生活に溶け込むカフェのスタイルや活動には、人口減や交通問題など、地方都市だけでなく将来の日本が向き合う課題への解決ヒントが隠れています!
