Atlas of Nagoya Castle

永井希実  |  Nagai Nozomi

名古屋城は徳川家康が戦のない平和な時代を見越して作った、様々な工夫が施されています。その工夫が現在の名古屋の都市形成の理由や産業の発展にも繋がっています。その凄さを伝えられるものとして、地形や城下町の地図などから「なぜ名古屋城はここに造られたのか」を読み解く地図帳を制作しました。地図からわかる名古屋城の凄さを知ってもらえると思います。

Nagoya Castle was well planned out by Ieyasu Tokugawa, who united the whole country of Japan, in anticipation of peaceful age without warfare. Such well worked out plan has led to the formation of the city of Nagoya and development of industry today. In order to introduce such elaborate scheme, I designed an atlas book on which readers can read and understand “why Nagoya Castle was built there” from topography and maps of the castle town. The booklet contains 11 sheets with maps and descriptions on several topics relating to why Nagoya Castle was located at the place where it is. I believe that this booklet will lead the readers to know about magnificence of Nagoya Castle.
