Ginza 2

Architect: Toyo Ito

Location: Mikimoto Ginza 2, Tokyo

Year built: 2004


The apparent simplicity of construction includes a prism perforated by a series of irregular windows, apparently arranged at random. However, since some of these are placed in the corners (which would typically be a column) and how to look closely at the fine finish of the facade, it is evident that it has been used a system of construction much more sophisticated. The concept is based on the construction of the facade, leaving the internal spaces without columns. The shape of the windows is part of an elaborate geometry of triangles and squares, which resemble a fractal composition.
