toriizuka@’¹‹‘©
KEY WORD :@architecture / general terms
@
Row of paired struts *tsuka ‘© flanking the king posts *shinzuka ^‘© which support a ridge purlin *munagi “–Ø. Found in the roof structure *koyagumi ¬‰®‘g of some of the oldest vernacular houses *minka –¯‰Æ in the Kinki ‹ß‹E district. The toriizuka, which rest upon timber plates running parallel to the *jimune ’n“ (beam beneath the ridge pole), are generally about half the height of the truss posts *udatsu ‰K—§ to which they are connected by slender horizontal ties *tsunagibari Œq—À. Functionally they help to stabilize both the roof membrane and the udatsu. The name toriizuka derives from the gatelike appearance of the total composition of tsunagibari and toriizuka, calling to mind the *torii ’¹‹ which mark the entry to the precincts of shrines *jinja _ŽÐ. Sometimes called simply torii.
