Glasshouse in Hiroshima, Japan. By Hiroshi Nakamura & NAP architects. Photos by Nacasa & Partners. Composed of roughly 6000 glass blocks strung together by stainless steel. The soundproof blocks not only cancel out the bustling cars and trams but they also create a façade that functions much like an urban noren -allowing light and air to pass through while revealing only a mosaic of the lush garden inside.
