1986 – Cinema Rise – Atsushi Kitagawara

A cinema and retail complex, RISE is a surrealist work that is as much scuplture as architecture. Its architect Atsushi Kitagawara was educated at Tokyo University of Fine Arts and Music and opened his office in 1980. Situated on a street awash with pedestrians, the exterior of four-story structure has a little bit of everything: Corten-steel and copper panels, translucent canopy, and cast-aluminium “drapery”. Inside, a mazelike system of circulation, ornamented with morde drapery, provides access to two movie theaters.
