Went to Nihonbashi twice today to take some morning and evening pictures of the famous bridge with the highway above.
Went to Ginza as well to visit the NICOLAS HAYEK CENTER from Ban Shigeru. Ban equipped the whole facade with wide and high shutters on all
floors. It's not so much a facade anymore in the traditional sense, as it can be fully opened, nothing separates indoor and outdoor anymore.
When entering the building on ground floor, fully glazed elevators are designed like little showrooms in which the different brands of the Swatch Group are exhibited. These elevator showrooms bring the customer to the other floors.
Added Nakamura Hiroshi / NAP Architects, the designer of the LANVIN BOUTIQUE in Ginza. He is a young architect in his 30's.
