fashion museum omotesando street, tokyo by h3ar
polish designers ryszard rychlicki and agnieszka nowak of h3ar created a 100 m tall tower
with 400 sq. meters of floors for their proposal for the fashion museum in omotesando street,
tokyo. the proposal was part of the international architecture competition, organized
a feature of the building is its lines in the structure of the tower - a clear gesture of form.
considering the limited areas of storey's they decided to play around with the arrangement and
the type of function, to shape the mass of the building properly. they achieved our objective
by displacing formal communication passages within the tower to its left side. its modular
spatial arrangement defines the shape of the mass. the skeleton of the building is wrapped
with soft forms of stories. the module of a core communication has been shifted axially by
10 degrees, thus causing full storey's to interconnect with mezzanines. the skeleton of the
building also consists of emergency routes, elevators, vertical pipelines and media supply channels.
