DESIGNED FOR THE OCCUPANTS
Inspired by the Mount Fuji which stands for the fundamental historical relevance of the Japanese culture.
Main focus - Wanting to be a clean and light object in the massive Tokyo Cityscape, the materials and the facade appearance play a relevant role. The choice of a layer of anodized aluminum mesh on top of glass generates a homogeneous surface. A continuous blurring layer that gives different light reflections and hides office, educational and public rooms. The result is an elegant, light and white secession of surface with an interruption of a wooden covered exhibition ramp as a climbing object. The exhibition ramp is accessible from every single floor and serves as a connecting element through the whole building.
Connected organization - Occupants on different floors are able to interact with each other with the help of the atria. The atria lights up all floors with natural daylight by keeping the students, publics and office areas private.
|Translucent - The anodized aluminum mesh is not only an efficient sun shading and acoustic cover it also allows framed views by keeping the privacy of the user. The inside keeps its lightness by the white surfaces and ceiling. At night the TOKYO POP LAB shows life from the inside with artificial lights through the hidden openings.
Cultural Hybridization - Korea / Taiwan / China / Malaysia / Japan are influencing each other, east and morgan from the underground to the mainstream. As the Asian pop culture is a hybrid this building is also a successful hybrid between an educational institution, laboratory, library, an exhibition, an office and a public roof garden.
