Capes and Waves CAW

A competition proposal for a technical school that covers every subject related to fish, such as aquaculture, aquarium design, and cooking. The site is located at the tip of the peninsula in Kanagawa Prefecture. The school is conceived as the composition of the “capes and waves” reminiscent of an unique scenery of the peninsula where inlets and forests are interwoven and create rich ecosystems.
Volumes like protruding capes are called “Cape terrace”. A space surrounded by the cape and made out of layers of waves is named as “Wave Square”. Two distinctive spaces facing the ocean provide spaces where various school activities can be taken place. They integrate social spaces for students, extracurricular activity area, and event spaces where the student meet the locals, and become a lively space suitable for the main approach of the school. In addition, Cape Terrace and Wave Square protect students and teachers from Tsunami and storm surges caused by typhoons.
