Takashimaya Times Square 1996
- Commercial / Retail
Design : Nikken Sekkei, Nihon Sekkei
From the initial design stages, the architect was also thinking about the lighting effects of lanterns for the building's exterior. Conventional commercialism always lights up finished building with numerous floodlights. In the midst of this transitional period, Takashimaya avoided trendy lighting, choosing instead sustainable building lighting.
