collabolation work with KAJIMA DESIGN


This is a 38 story skyscraper which is a complex of hotel and office located in the redevelopment area of Shiodome. Surrounded by glass and metal curtain walls, this building stands out with large terracotta tiles and a vertically stacked double- storied office garden. The ties are treated as siding panel producing the shadow which transforms into various expressions with the movement of the sun.
