Corrugated siding house in Nagayo

More sketches from the day (Nov. 18) here:

This house which includes a small shopfront is adjacent a narrow but busy hillside road on one side, and the Nagayo co-op supermarket parking lot on the other. It is like a hands-on living museum of weathered and new corrugated metal (and translucent plastic) siding... there's something incredibly powerful about this scene as it expresses how its site has stood up to so many constraints and challenges over the decades: economic, geographic, temporal, climactic, and development pressures.
