the theme of the competition is to suggest a contemporary housing type (system) for a Mencuis and his mother*. while requiring a house that perfectly meets today’s Mencuis’s mother’s will, i think that to move into just a new house is not the fundamental solution.
the kernel of the question is laid on the social eduacion system itself, not on any form of a house. and the range of an architect’s function and responsibility exceeds the frame of a house to the whole system of living. so, my understanding and system is..
now, it is impossible to educate our children through the real one.
the gap between the real and the virtual made by encoding the real is considerable.
the media - such as a teacher and a terminal in the shuttle convey the virtual.
shuttles threading through the real ones let the children face the real without encoding.
and Mencuis and his mother do not move to anywhere.
Mencuis and his mother* : known as the story, 孟母三選の教え
引っ越さない we stay
everyday the shuttle stops by the station and bring the children to the real - the real market*, the real grave* of today. while moving around, in the shuttle they learn the encoded but various world and out of the shuttle they learn the fewer but real world.
they don’t need to move their homes. just wait and take one of the shuttles.
