Japan Commercial Environmental Design Association (JCD) Review

‘INTERMEDIATHEQUE’ was established in the JP Tower which was developed from the former Tokyo Central Post Office building to a large-scale free-of-charge museum and a shop arcade ‘KITTE’. It was re-edited as a cultural facility attempting a dynamic synthesis with a commercial facility. Following the perspective of retrofuturism, artificial display methods and materials such as brass, copper, and iron mold link the 19th-century museum’s space and the 20th-century modernistic design.
