  • Help - Furniture House #1, Shigeru Ban

    Hello pushpullers,

    inspired by Michel's latest creations, I decided to make a model of the Furniture House #1, by Shigeru Ban. The model is almost done, but I realize there's some information missing to finish the work. So I need your help.
    If you can't remember, this is the house:

      I need your help to clarify two things. Check the plan:

      1. This furniture units are made from OSB panels, but I'm not sure what's the finishing of the back. Is it also OSB or some white material to match the exterior of the house?

      2. This corner have a metalic support for the roof, but I don't know the purpose of the element with a circle in the middle. Anybody knows what it is?

      Thanks in advance

                    it won't help you, i can understand the characters individually, but together with those numbers and alphabets, i can't make sense of them. japanese construction terminology.

                    from what i gathered by looking at photos, its' vertical cypress boards

                        It says that exterior material is
                        Pine 12mm OS(Oil Stain)
                        FB 8mm VP (Vinyl Paint)
                        I think the back side of furniture is structurally pine, finished with VP treated FB.
                        FB stands for FiberBoard as in MDF(Medium Density Fiberboard), and they come in different densities.

                        digdoi, are you sure that circular element is in reality has a shape like the one in your model? I don't see it in pictures...

                            I see. First of all, three vertical rods are together carring vertical loads and connecting elements are like hoops, I think. Ban often divides a column into more slender elements like these. What's that plate with a hole? I don't know. Anything that holds three rods together will do the job, it could be any form. In this case, looks like he made it into the holder of something.

                              Hello there people.
                              (sorry if the right procedure to post this question must be in a new topic...and also sorry for my poor english)
                              I´m searching for the Wall-less house of Shigeru Ban, can you give me some information? Or maybe the Naked House. I have searched on my university and city libraries but there is no more information than 3 or 4 pages for this projects.

                              If you guys have some, i will be very please. Thanks
