Architectural Contest in the Japanese Capital City by reThinking

Tokyo Parking Tower Architecture Competition

# 018 Tokyo Parking tower Architecture Contest

The capital of Japan, Tokyo, located in the center-east of the island of Honshu, specifically in the Kanto region.

The city, divided into two main areas – the continental and the insular – is the most industrialized zone of the country while being the center of politics, economy and popular culture. Its surface includes lakes, rivers and national parks, as well as very important structures built by man, such as the Tokyo Tower.

Tokyo Parking Tower Competition

The site where the future parking tower will be located is located in the Minato area very close to Tokyo tower, the Tokyo telecom tower. The solar is a large green apple with an interior vacuum that is currently used as a crossroads. So the tower in turn reactivates the entire area. The solar being so close to the center has an ideal situation for its purpose.

Program – Features

The project must contemplate the following program:

1- The design of the surroundings of the tower, including green areas, shadow areas, walks

2- The tower: it must be designed in the urban void with a total of 2260 m² of surface, a tower whose main use is parking. The height, the number of floors, the total capacity of the tower will be determined by the participant himself. The participants must design it according to the following concepts:

– Use of space to maximize capacity
– Integration with the environment of the building (treatment of the facade)
– Self-sufficient Building
– It will be positively valued that the building contributes energetically to the city.
– It is allowed that the building is expandable or transformable in time.
