The theme of this competition, which will be held for the 14th time this year, is “half-living, half-working – a room with two swords”. We are looking for a space design of 1R (24 square meters) that imagines living. The final presentation was made by the 6 groups that passed the first screening, and the Grand Prix work was decided. In the “Half-living, half-work – Two-sword style room – Exhibition”, in addition to the full-scale exhibition of the Grand Prix-winning work, models of excellent works will also be displayed.
In addition, current students studying architecture, interior design, and spatial design will be invited to the venue this time, and we plan to hold a public presentation by the Grand Prix winner, including a lecture by Mr. Makoto Tanijiri, chairman of the judging committee. This pattern is scheduled to be broadcast on the Discovery Channel “IMAGINEZ University with Discovery” which is being broadcast every Friday.

Work introduction
■ Grand Prix work
・ Title: “Futari no Sumika” / Author: Kazuki Miura Kyoto Prefectural University Graduate School

Features of the work
“Double sumi” This is like a dwelling within a dwelling, or a dwelling wrapped around a dwelling. I thought about working with the theme of half-living, half-working. Considering that it is important to be conscious of other people and the outside world, I intervened with a wooden structure like the saying, “Work is a window that connects with society.” It transforms the existing “living” space into a seamless U-shaped space, creating a new lifestyle and lifestyle. While the surroundings are separated from tension, the behavior of the working residents is exposed to the outside, creating a tolerance that allows people to come and go outside.
This proposal created a big change with a simple operation and a small change. “Working” and “living” are ambiguously blended in a studio, and a new home with a generous relationship will change the lives of the residents to a richer one.

I am very honored to have been selected for the Grand Prix under the excellent judges!
The judging session was stimulating as I received a variety of objective opinions on my ideas, and I was able to deepen my thinking. In addition, it will be a valuable opportunity to have a full-scale exhibition, and I would be happy if this proposal would be an opportunity to think about the future. I myself would like to explore and enjoy designing how to live in the future!
