This is a big and solid building in Tokyo comparing with neighbor buildings. But the amazing thing is when you stand in front of this building, you feel there noting in front of you. The building was cut by several trangles to make the build just be like suroundings. And the material using makes the building look like a eraser disappearing into the sky and environment. SANNA used many way to make this “big building” lighter and smaller.
