2005 – Mikimoto Ginza – Toyo Ito / Taisei Design

The building of apparent simplicity comprises a prism perforated by a series of irregular windows, like a Swiss cheese, apparently arranged at random. However, since some of these are placed in the corners (where typically would be a column) and as we look closely at the fine finish of the facade, is evident that a much a more sophisticated construction system was used. The concept is based on the building is held by its facade, leaving the internal spaces column-free.
