Midland Square is a multi-purpose facility of offices and shops in front of Nagoya Station. The design concept makes extensive use of the most advanced LED lighting available at the time to create an interior space that is both ethereal and kinetic. “Light Balloons” spontaneously descending and ascending in the immense atrium give performances of light and sound that greatly heighten the shopping experience and enhance the facility’s unique atmosphere.
The mist and light motif of the spacious Sky Promenade on the top floor transforms it into a sea of clouds where visitors can enjoy an indoor walk and appreciate the surrounding nightscape.
