Kisho Kurokawa

The tower is turned 45 degrees from the axis of the ground floor level to maintain sea views from the upper floors.
The building has 15 double-decker vertical lifts.
The tower was designed to reflect a subtle Oriental influence.
The main lobby is four storeys high, finished in polished granite and ceramics.
The lobby is framed by concrete-filled tubular steel columns.
The exterior façade transitions from granite with strip windows to tinted wall glass, smoothly inclining from an octagonal base to a square top.
