This is a rebuilding plan for a long-established eel restaurant that has been in business for 85 years in downtown Tokyo. Due to a full-scale road expansion plan, the owner was obliged to reduce the site area. The owner decided to welcome the 100 year anniversary of the restaurant in a renewed shop and planned an RC structured shop with residence.

About 35 years ago Michael Jantzen designed the concept for a windowless revolving restaurant that would replace its windows with large video screens. This was of course before the Internet, HDTV, etc. The basic idea was that instead of building a structure high enough to place a restaurant on top (in order to get a great view) he would mount real time video cameras onto the top of a tall support tower built into the center of the restaurant, which was to be constructed on the ground level. The real time view seen by the cameras on top of the tower would be sent down into the perimeter of the restaurant. The cameras would be slowly rotating so that the customers inside of the restaurant would feel as though the entire building was rotating.

Collection Building is an art depot open to the public. A public route zigzags through the building, from the lobby on the ground floor where a café can be found up to an exhibition space, sculpture garden and restaurant on the roof. On the way up the route passes along and through art depots and restoration workshops. In depots visible from the route, the exhibition can be changed on a daily basis by simply moving storage racks so each visit to the building can offer a unique experience. On three floors the route passes through exhibition spaces which will be programmed by Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.
