Ootaki-machi Municipal Hall
- Kenji IMAI, Manabu CHIBA (Repair competition)
- Taisei Corporation
- The building showed the essence of architectural modernism precisely in Imai’s works in 1959. The deployment of the earth in the farm area is expressed by the single story house construction (partially two layers),which is represented by a combination of exposed concrete , precast concrete structure with 9.0m span of rigid frame, and steel sash that make up the clear-cut facade. This is his first work to show a mural that combines pieces of pottery from his longing for Gaudi.
