fukoku seimei tower

the architects`strategy was to design a façade, which creates a kaleidoscopic effect that is able to distract the viewer`s perception, distorting the real dimension of the building to create a fluid transition with the urban context. there is  rather big  public space around the tower which helps to integrate the building into the urban context.
