Hiroshima Bay Future Village, Japan 1991
The Hiroshima Bay Future Village was a concept design developed for Yamashita Sekkei Inc. in 1991 that looked at possibilities of a new resort style village located on Edajima Island in Hiroshima Bay, Japan. A large sloping site of disused agricultural land with sea frontage, approx. 1km wide and 2km long , became the site for a proposal that could house around 8,000- 10,000 people with a building area of nearly 300,000 sq.m. It incorporated various housing options; high rise towers, hotels, medium density apartments and cliff side villas. A low rise dense central village hub, 250 boat marina and waterside activities formed the sea front edge. New access roads climbed up to the main peak tower overlooking the village. Other feature uses were science/ art museums, water fun park, sports complex and maritime / agricultural history buildings.
