Yeah the renders are pretty cool.

The main architect being Nikken Sekkei Ltd (Tokyo), with the associate architects listed too. If you are also interested in the other surrounding 4 scrapers, click on each of the projects listed for the architects, renders, pics and other information @ Tokyo Mid Town Project

Hope this helps

Thanks for providing the render Muse.

By the way, Tokyo mid-town project is just 400 metres away from Roppongi hills:



This pic by Chad was taken from Roppongi Hills Mori tower

Why nearly every building in Japan looks like a box???

Is it cause of the earthquakes or why they dont have specail architecture?

Japan has sick buildings from which you think 'what the hell is this doing here'.
But HT, you are right to say that high-rise in Japan is often dissapointing. I don't think it has to do with earthquakes, cuz it is not harmfull to add a nice facade or a different shape of roof or something like that. But even that is rearly been seen in Japan. Japanese architects are great residential designers, big offices is not there thing. Except for Kenzo Tange, he did great big projects.

^That's right, 248 metres vs 243 m of the Tokyo Government Bldg.

I don't know well about Shinjuku's 338 m project, but I thought it was approved right

December 6th
