The metal panels used in this building are creative and monumental. As a building that connects two major stations within Tokyo, Mitsukoshi-mae station and Shin-Nihonbashi station, this building is an important development within the Nihonbashi area regeneration project.
Key figures and points from the project:
-The design of the mirror polished stainless steel panels are based on 3D data.
-The 2mm thick exterior aluminium panels on the elevator shaft are roughly 700mm(H) x 4000mm(W).
-The aluminium panels visible from the courtyard are 3.0mm thick aluminium, roughly 3150mm(H) x 1150mm(W). The Origami style triangular shapes are made from 4~9 variously sized and shaped panels.
