Architecture made by Japanese (outside of Japan)

Does anyone have a list of japanese skyscraper/supertalls designed by japanese/japanese companies/Japanese diaspora in other countries? Please post pictures of their projects. I'm mostly interested in skyscraper/supertalls but if you have other buildings too that's ok.

Fumihiko Maki,槇文彦

150 Greenwich Street NY (WTC4)

United Nations New HQ Building (35 stories. 2008)


The United Nations has chosen Pritzker Prize-winning Fumihiko Maki to design another building, which will be on First Avenue between 41st and 42nd Streets. According to the Times, "glassy, white and sheer but elegant" design is projected to cost $330 million and to be finished by 2008. Since the older Secretariat building (picture, left) needs to be renovated, Maki's building will house the General Assembly, the Secretariat and their staffs until the Secretariat is ready; then U.N. offices in other parts of the city will move into the Maki building. Only Pritzker Prize winning architects were allowed to competer; Richard Meier dropped out because he didn't think the site would work, given physical issues of size, security, traffic, etc.
Maki's buildings, like the Fujisawa Municipal Gym in Fujisawa, Japan (picture, right), are considered to be in the International Style modernism, much like the U.N. Headquarters by Wallace K. Harrison. Another example of International Style modernism: The Lever House.

arata isozaki's LA museum of contemporary art on grand avenue in downtown los angeles. the mid-80s po-mo may be out of style now, but it was really amazing in its day. give it another few years and the architectural aficionados will get around to appreciating it again.

I (and everybody I know) thought Toyo Ito was japanese, but while I was looking for the pics below, I found he was born in Seul, but it seems Seul Was japanese when he was born, 1941, and graduated in Architecture in Tokyo, and his office is located in Tokyo so...

Yeah!, it's a wonderful city, my favourite city in Spain together with Granada

I just remembered another tower by Toyo Ito in Amsterdam, it's name is Mahler 4 or Ito Toren, I made a 3d work of it for a subject in the university, you can see that 3d in here, but it was one of my first 3d so don't expect anything brilliant : http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...887&highlight=

It's 99 metres and 26 floors tall.
