Scope and content:
This project series documents a proposal for a sports complex in Odawara, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. The proposal was submitted in the context of a competition sponsored by the municipality of Odawara. The office of Shoei Yoh was a finalist in the competition. The design called for multiple athletic facilities in a 3-storey structure with a roof that adapts to different uses of the space and to different external conditions and forces. In order to achieve this adaptability, computer simulations were executed to determine the appropriate dimensions for each element in a grid of 3-dimensional trusses.
The project series consists chiefly of printouts or photocopies of presentation and design development drawings. Also included are wireframe sections and perspective views from roof deformation simulations. There are also some printouts of computer renderings of the roof structure. Digital files include still images of the roof and building in .jpg format. There are also some transparencies and textual records. The content of this file was created between 1990 and 1991.
