Mado building, Tokyo

The "Window Building" in Tokyo, Japan by Atelier Bow-Wow. The site is a V intersection of streets, so it's very public and likely very noisy. In order to use this to an advantage, Atelier stressed windows that connect inside and outside, which also helps the building assume its own rhythm. Other layers of context build upon that: the buildings around it, street circulation patterns, and so forth. The structure is just concrete sheer walls, and there are only hints of shading devices. The project is customer-based rather than client-based, so there's no specific program beyond just office space.
