Here are the winners of the Shinkenchiku residential competition 2009. Shinkenchiku are the publishers of the Japan Architect.
The competition theme is a very interesting one as it invites you to design, not for a person/s or a place but for an epoch. It goes like "A little more than a century ago, the first motion picture was shown before an audience. Thereafter, “the movie” grew with tremendous vitality as a medium. In the course of the 20th century, countless movies were filmed in virtually every nation in the world, and countless people attended theaters to see them. Today, the movie has become an integral part of our everyday reality. Since the advent of the movie, we have changed in the way we see and think about things." ........
