美しすぎる住宅棟「フェアリーオアシス江戸川」、景観まちづくり賞を受賞!

不動産トータルプロデュースを手掛ける「KIスター不動産」が"質感の高い統一性のある街並みづくり"をめざし江戸川区に展開した「フェアリーオアシス江戸川」が、第二回景観まちづくり賞「まちなみ建築」部門を受賞した。

景観まちづくり賞は江戸川区が主催するイベントで、住む街の魅力を高め、人々の営みをより活発にするまちづくり活動やまちなみ建築に取り組む個人・団体、及び事業者を表彰するもの。約30の事業者が応募しわずか3社の受賞となったが、そのうちのひとつが「フェアリーオアシス江戸川」だ。

道路を緩やかにカーブさせ、敷地に対して建物をななめに配置することでゆとりを感じられる街並となったこと、白を基調とし、ゴミ置き場や電柱などにも配慮が行き届いた統一感のあるデザイン、また各住戸の小さな柱がリズム感をだし、電柱等にも細かな配慮を行い魅力ある景観を創出している点が高く評価され、今回の受賞につながった。

夜間はガーデンライトと門灯を点灯してもらう規定を分譲地の全入居者と結び、夜間における分譲地の景観向上と防犯に寄与しているのも、住む人を考えた作りとなっている。

KIスター不動産は、地域密着型を掲げる不動産のトータルプロデューサー。イタリアマインドと日本の伝統文化を融合した住宅を提案するモデルハウス「ドムスデザインカーザ」を青山に展開したり、イタリアの高級車「アルファ ロメオ」とのコラボレーションキャンペーンも実施するなど、新しい取り組みも積極的に行っていることでも知られている。

美しすぎる住宅棟「フェアリーオアシス江戸川」、景観まちづくり賞を受賞!

Commuters step around a 3D art exhibit entitled "Escape the Rat Race" painted on the concourse of Victoria railway station in London to promote a pest control company, Wednesday, Jan. 18, 2012.

Known for his impressive 3D pavement art, Edgar Mueller created this gigantic chasm for the West India Quay Festival in London. Mueller derives some of his inspiration from the "Ice Age" films.

At first glance, street artist Julian Beever's sidewalk creations look like unfinished chalk drawings of oddly morphed animals or landscapes. But if you happen upon the one perfect angle, the image magically snaps into shape, showing you a giant charging snail or an aerial view of Times Square.

The process is called anamorphosis, which involves drawing a distorted image which gives the impression of a three-dimensional scene from a certain vantage point. According to NPR, the talented artist sets up a camera or a viewfinder in the specific spot he intends his viewers to stand and draws his killer whales and beachy snapshots from that perspective. So if a passerby views the work from that same perspective, the drawings jump to life in their three-dimensional glory. But if they stand from any other position, the chalk creation appears to be elongated fragments of an incomplete design.

Street artist Julian Beever also creates other mind-bending illustrations like this chalk reflection. Check out more of his illusions.

French street art duo TSF Crew create logic-defying works of art in the run-down areas of industrial France. Combining the cheeky thrills of a well-executed optical illusion with tst makes the perfect combination.

Commuter Katherine Ware relaxes on street artist Kurt Wenner's 3D work of art as he adds the finishing touches in Waterloo Station on October 17, 2007 in London, England. Wenner is famous for combining traditional street painting with classical training, illusion and performance to invent an art form of his own know as anamorphic, illusionistic or 3D painting.

Kurt Wenner, 3D chalk master, recently created a less perilous way to climb on the Grand Canyon with his massive optical illusion. Located at the South Rim of the park, the installation looks 3D from certain points of view thanks to 150 hours of hard work on Wenner's part. While it may not measure up to the real Grand Canyon experience, the photo ops may come out victorious.

British artists 3D Joe & Max created this stunning optical illusion in conjunction with Reebok CrossFit as part of the seventh annual Guinness World Records Day. The 1,160.4-square-meter painting, seen in London, broke the world record for the largest 3D street art.

Dutch artist Leon Keer is known for his impressive street art displays that play with perspective, but he also knows how to attract onlookers -- by choosing a recognizable theme. One of his most recent works seen in the Netherlands paid homage to Pac-Man, the 1980s arcade game.

Artist Qi Xinghua created this work of art entitled "Macao's One Impression" outside a local shopping center in Macao. Hidden within the 120 meter-long optical illusion are all of the city's historical and architectural landmarks.

A Flickr user photographed this impossible object on a building facade. The rectangle uses overlap and various perspective angles to create the illusion of the twisted shaped.
