Metal Finishes

This building, located at the intersection of Omotesando and Meiji-Dori, uses stainless steel panels to create an enormous kaleidoscope.
Each of the triangular panels that make up the kaleidoscope has a unique shape, and is positioned at angles mathematically determined.
The assembly system is atypical, with the peak points of the panels positioned using backing with conical tips, and the triangular panels attached by hinges to the ceiling joist, which connect to the peak.
