PIAS GINZA 4-8-10 、 Kume Sekkei, 久米設計


 

IMGP0163

During the same day of the Tokyo Marathon in downtown Ginza I saw this twisted tower and I couldn`t resist to take some shots. They are a very well known and established company in Japan. Here is their official homepage, you might want to check it out.

It seems they learnt the lesson from Kengo Kuma for this design or maybe I am just influenced by the contemporary thoughts. Anyway it is a clever way to make things interesting. I hope you like it. I shot also some details about the system they used.  Here below some data from this blog.
