Early afternoon on the last day of the October 3 consecutive holidays to feel autumn arrival for calm climate. Ochanomizu.

Lecture that was held in Ochanomizu Nicolai temple
"Value of cultural assets of Nicolai temple (Tokyo revival sanctuary) and affiliated building"
Blog reports this this time.

It is completed in 1891 by basic design of Mikhail shichurupofu and conduct design of architect "Josiah Conder" to be called "father of our country architecture world" by. "Sanctuary" of Byzantine style appointed as important cultural property of country in 1962,
"Value of architecture of affiliated building" to exist that was used at the time of construction again as bishop building, presbytery, gate-keeper place, library
We were assigned to this and were gone on the platform Mr. history of Chiba Institute of Technology professor architecture specialty Kawahigashi known as authority of condor doctor study.

A little less than 150 participants gather in venue, and "full thanks" are right in a state. Many participants about "construction of Nicolai temple,"
We send big interest.

It is the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 to have become big knot after the completion if we read the history of architecture of Nicolai temple.

Nicolai temple at the time of the completion

Dome of temple of Confucius and spire of bell tower, affiliated building damaged by fire. In the case of the revival, some buildings are modified and lead to current form. It is architect "Shinnichiro Okada" to have been in charge of this repair. It is person who designed Meiji Mutual Life Insurance Co. building of the important cultural property-maru of country. "Josiah Conder" who introduced in the beginning is person who designed Mitsubishi Building No. 1 that everybody knows well.

In the church building group sewed by "two architects" who were popular figure, it is in those days in building group which is valuable for Japanese building world without still losing the splendor and force.

This is design drawing of "sanctuary" of condor handwriting. There seemed to be plan to build five domes in those days.

Temple of Confucius which we are building

It is common that Byzantine style usually carries dome on board on the square, but it is octagonal and picks up dome in Nicolai temple, and it seems to be style of condor original. We used length expression such as measurements interval of Japan in drawing from the first so that Japanese craftsman could undertake construction clearly.

On the other hand, in "the affiliated building group," French architectless refuse designs bishop building and presbytery before the temple of Confucius completion, and condor designs gate-keeper place, library after the temple of Confucius completion. Most put iron bar in the brick and give seismic strengthening and are "steel frame building in brick" that we painted with mortar from the top. After the Great Kanto Earthquake, building will be repaired each by Shinnichiro Okada, but is leaving a lot of parts with those days on now. Bishop halls which we designed of reply refuse are the 1875 completion, and there is some remodeling, but is "the oldest building" in building in brick to exist in Tokyo.

This is old bishop building. Reply refuse design. It was 2 stories, but we are repaired, and the second-floor part is changed to 1-story one-storied house after the earthquake disaster by Shinnichiro Okada. It is Tokyo oldest building in brick.

Old gate-keeper place. This is regarded as design due to condor. After the temple of Confucius completion, it was built soon. It is valuable condor work which leaves under the eaves decoration expression called "Lombardy Zone" on those days although restoration and the enlargement are accomplished.

The last is old library. It is thought with design due to condor. It was 3 stories, but we removed the third-floor part by earthquake disaster and became 2 stories in those days. Our country's first "firebed which condor recommended-proof" was still used, and this floor seemed to be restored in Mitsubishi Building No. 1. It is remains of an ancient structure which are precious as a few works of condor.

Through difficulty and the times various by hand of best building and great men at the time,
Nicolai temple which lets the bell sound through town without still changing.

When, as symbol of Ochanomizu, the precious building is taken a walk through in spite of being feeling some other time; how.
