Memorial Auditorium and Administration Building of Kyusyu Institute of Technology
- Kiyoshi SEIKE
- Taisei Corporation
- This facility is located within the first technical university campus established in Kyushu Area of Japan, and consists of an auditorium and office. As the auditorium is placed in the naturally sloped site, the floor of the seating area follows the gradient. The building is covered by the folded slab roof. The wood wool cement board of the (original) internal ceiling was used as both mold and finish. The office is a single-story building with square units laid out on the floorplan. While having beams placed diagonally to maintain horizontal stiffness, the facade on the longitude side has floor-to-ceiling windows.
