Ginza Place, Tokyo, Japan

Ginza Place, Tokyo, Japan

HWM (Singapore) - - CONTENTS - By Alvin Soon

Ginza might be known as one of the fan­ci­est parts of Tokyo, but geeks of all kinds have a new rea­son to visit. Ginza Place is a beau­ti­ful show­case of tech­nol­ogy; it houses both of Nis­san and Sony’s new global ag­ship show­rooms where you can see their lat­est and great­est prod­ucts.

The build­ing it­self is some­thing to marvel at. De­signed by Klein Dytham Ar­chi­tects, the build­ing fea­tures a façade that’s built from 5,315 in­di­vid­ual alu­minum pan­els. The sev­enth oor’s bal­cony was de­signed as homage to the area’s pre­vi­ous build­ing heights, and the form of the build­ing re­flects the cur­va­ture of the iconic Wako build­ing across the street.
