Zuisho-ji寺庙(东京都港区)是禅宗分支 Obaku Sect在东京的第一座寺庙,是江户时代的住持Ingen带到日本的禅宗佛教学校之一。在本项目中,建筑师团队重建了寺庙内僧人的住所。

Zuisho-ji Temple (Minato-ku, Tokyo) is the first temple in Tokyo of the Obaku Sect, one of the Zen Buddhist schools brought to Japan by the Priest Ingen during the Edo Period. In this project, we rebuilt the priests’ quarters within the temple.

Designated as jūyō bunkazai or Tangible Cultural Property, close attention was paid to the axis extending from the temple’s repository. We developed a design to reflect the arrangement of Chinese temples which highlight orientation and depth. We placed a U-shaped cloister on the south side of the axis so that the temple could be more accessible to the community. At the center of the courtyard is a water pool with a raised stage to encourage people to hold events and performances for the community.

本项目的结构框架由钢和木材共同打造而成。外部的木质托梁和百叶窗相互呼应,创造出一种几何图案,从而突出了Obaku Sect禅宗的特殊性。

The building is supported by a combination steel and wooden frame. The wooden joists and louvers on the exterior resonate with each other and create a geometric pattern that highlights the uniqueness of Obaku Sect.
