Japan International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD Japan) Review

This edifice is a glass building of an unstructured form mainly used for commercial activities. Lighting is installed inside the double-skinned layer of glass, creating a formation of strong and weak lights intermingled with lightless dimensions. Although it creates a somewhat complex impression at first sight, the lighting system is contrived in a way that the colored lighting does not spill inside when one looks outside from the building. The lighting design is conscious of the external appearance of the building facing Aoyama Street.
