Mikimoto building in Tokyo by Toyo Ito

Then you should head over to Tod’s, an Italian footwear retailer, on Tokyo’s Ometesando boulevard. At the very least, act like you’re shopping while taking in the grandeur of its ornate facade that branches out like a concrete tree, covering and supporting its six floors of overpriced loafers. In creating the shop, the architects had but 33 feet of street frontage to grab shoppers’ attentions with, opting to partially conceal and entice the public with a kind of concrete lingerie.

Mikimoto Building. Toyo Ito. It is a tall, slender building with uniquely cut windows. The windows keep this building from fading into the background.

So happy I got invited to go to Tokyo this November. Can't wait 😄✈

This commercial building in Tokyo’s Ginza district, designed for Mikimoto, a company world famous for its pearl jewelry. This is a rectangular building, 17m wide by 14m deep, with nine stories above ground and one basement level. The lower levels are used as shops and offices for Mikimoto, upper levels are leased as offices. “Mikimoto Ginza 2” is wrapped in four thin walls to create a tube structural system. There are no internal columns, the floor slabs are a stack of nine homogeneous layers.
