Monuments to Ordinary Life in Hiroshima

Motomachi and Chojuen Apartments

In 1978, an apartment complex was built in an effort to redevelop an area concentrated with people who had lost their dwellings when the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. The site deftly conveys the architect Masato Otaka’s commitment to incorporating modern technology in a building to create a symbol of ordinary life. Though the apartments are markedly different from the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park (designed by Kenzo Tange), which function as “monuments to the extraordinary,” Otaka’s buildings are also a powerful part of Hiroshima, the site of the atomic bomb.
