Ginza Place 銀座プレイス

5-8-1 Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo

Futuristic facade inspired by traditional craft at the Ginza Place

Whether or not you are an architectural buff, you will not miss the striking all-white exterior of Ginza Place that is located on one corner of the crowded Ginza Crossing.

The facade comprises 5,315 aluminum panels, which are arranged in a latticework that is inspired by the 'sukashibori' technique typically seen in traditional flower baskets or incense burners. The 11-story building opened in September 2016 and is home to Nissan and Sony's global flagship showrooms.

Look closer, and you will see a seventh-floor balcony that is on the same height as the rooftops of other neighboring buildings. This was deliberate—here the Tokyo-based architects Klein Dytham gives a nod to the past by highlighting the former building height limit.
