It was thought that the building that extended as a delicate scale “Chopsticks”, could not produced. Then, it was thought that the scale of “Pillar” of the high rise was reduced to the scale of “Pillar” of the house, and it was going to make it to a structure near the person.

The pillar of the iron frame of 10×10cm was displayed for the site, with the small pillar tied in some places mutually in the beam, and it looks like a cylindrical pillar where the entire building is one. The glass is set between those iron frames.

Externally it becomes milky-white like the shoji and it has the transparent shade like the showcase in parts. Everything from the exterior of the structure and the fixture and furniture combine naturally with gradation.

This building has neither a reflecting facade peculiar to Ginza nor a signboard colorful exterior. This building in a rough expression of the architect’s desire, with a transparent facade, to connect the town ‘GINZA ‘ externally to the inside of the building.
