A City Hall with an Interior Plaza

Nagaoka City Hall Aore

This city hall was completed in 2012. Here, the architect Kengo Kuma had decided to design a building that had a brusque external appearance yet placed emphasis on its "interior.” A plaza referred to as the “nakadoma” was created in the center of the site around which various functions of the city hall were distributed, with a large roof covering the entire space. The “nakadoma” is open 24 hours to the public, and is not only surrounded by city hall facilities but also a gymnasium, convenience store, and an assembly hall. The public space connects various types of activities, creating a new sense of bustle and vibrancy.
