Waving

roof. "The night wing"






Foundation work for wooden roof on concrete slab has started.
Joint part have to be "naturally" smooth as one piece, but not
too much beautiful.















070828広いほう.jpg
Wider part, on the south side.









070828細いほう.jpg
Narrower part, on the north side.







Carpenter's knowledge lead us precisely how to
make it and how to set the line of the roof in the air.

They have full and detailed knowledge about temple-shrine
roofs.

"Piling will lead the final shape."
or...
"Peeling parts from outseide of final shape, one and one,
The first part of structure to form waving roof will appear."

Their brains (and thier hands, I think.) are so logical.

Once again, waving...

Erection has

started.


It started very early in the morning.
When we arrived at the site after a meeting in Tokushima,
at the night wing side ...already...

Several sloped beams were set on the horizontal beams.




070808軒裏.JPG
Under the eave, the edge line must be curved smoothly,
but we found some unevenness ...




070808金物.JPG
At the joint part of concrete and timber, sloped beams will
be set on the metal fittings which Ichikawa C.C. attached on
positions we inked weeks before...




Miscalculates, miscopy, lack of communication between
my architect office and workshop shows those result clearly.
Erection must go smoothly if everything was alright but
unexpected work at the site was needed.

Temple-shrine carpenters specially feel uneasy with "gaps"
"spaces" between timber parts. Because usually their work
appears as finish, not be covered with board or so. While we were trying to find causes, they tend to get emotional.

But, it proved their strong will to make things better,
yes to the best. It can't be caused by negative feelings.
We felt "we are fighting with the birth pangs of LANDHUIS."










070808休憩.JPG

Taking a rest. Masters are still talking about "why".
Concrete mass cool them and their brains down.






070808デイウイング.JPG
At the day wing… Columns.





Finally, we found it.
The order of priority of measurements in calculation drawings was different between us and carpenters. Repeated renewal of
drawings and calculations. A few carpenters couldn't follow those changes. Sometimes old drawings were referred. And minor mistakes.

O.K. Main frame got its real shape and the site will work
smoothly... but we know "Great waving roof" story is just started. About the connection part of timber roof and concrete one, there is only one way to fit them as one piece. By high skilled worker's hands and our eyes. The most
difficult time has yet to come.
