A long and slender building where 40m like “Chopsticks” was exceeded on the site only of 50m2 in the corner in the intersection on Namiki street and Matsuya street was planned. It was thought that the natural situation that extended as it is a delicate scale “Chopsticks”, and had become a building was not able to be produced.
Then, it was thought that the scale of “Pillar” of the high rise was reduced to the scale of “Pillar” of the house, and it was going to make it to a structure near the person.
The pillar of the iron frame of 10×10cm was displayed according to the site, the small pillar tied in some places mutually in the beam, and it did like a cylindrical pillar whose the entire building is one.

The glass is set between those.
It is externals it becomes a milk-white like the shoji, it becomes becoming the transparent shade like the showcase in parts, and everything from the exterior to the structure and the fixture and furniture combines, and with the gradation.
This building has no neither reflecting facade peculiar to Ginza nor a signboard colorful exterior. This building in a rough expression, is sometimes a transparent part, and is externals that connect the town ‘GINZA ‘ to the inside.
This is a proposal of a new way of the building in Ginza to be built.
