1971 – Pola Home Offices – Nikken Sekkei

The Pola Home Offices building achieves a synthesis between structural design and architectural and spatial articulation. In between two stair-and-elevator cores at the ends, large, story-high girders are spanned providing a solution wherebythe space of the lobby could be freed from intermediary columns. The lobby seems to expand beyond its physical limits and to be defined by the train embankment in front and the equally sloping and planted roof at the back.
