EDV01

Completion: 2011

Architect: Yasutaka Yoshimura Architects

Client: Daiwa Lease

We have collaborated with Daiwa Lease, Japanese pre-fabrication company, to produce an infrastructure free unit as a front-line base when a disaster happens. Using 20ft ISO shipping container module, it is possible to convey the unite by the existing transportation route: by land, sea and air. At the moment, in order not to rely on the infrastructure of the site, the utility equipments have to be too big. So that it occupies the almost all of the container space and there is no room for living. EDV-01 has been designed to extend its shell above and transform itself to 2-storied after its set-up. This gimmick enable us to produce a hard shelter which is durable in the affected area as well as to avoid an useless transporting of empty container.

 

大和リースと協働した緊急災害時の最前線基地としてのインフラフリーユニット。20フィート海運コンテナの規格を流用することで既存の陸海空路を利用できる。敷地のインフラに頼らないで済むだけの設備機器は容積が大きく、コンテナに収めると居住スペースが取れなくなるため、設置後に上方へ向け拡張して2階建てに変形させることにした。この仕掛けによって空気を運ぶ無駄を回避し、しかも被災地の環境に耐える堅牢な殻を備えた建築ができた
