Meiji street between Shibuya and Harajuku is one of the most fashionable
area for young people. This building was originally designed to put
a large TV studio as an anchor use and to collect media-related companies
The main studio (A-studio) which can be converted to an event hall is
laid out on 1F and its supportive facilities are on B2F level. On 9F,
a sub-studio (B studio) is designed to overlook beautiful Yoyogi park
and gymnasiums. 4,5,6F are used by the head office of News Broadcasting
Japan co. and 7,8F are by Konami (a famous game soft maker). It is literally
a mecca of media business.
In the huge main entrance hall, there stands an illuminated wall which
shows the urban pattern of Shibya district.
We insisted on using the raw matterials as much as possible and especially
the exterior design paid high attentions to the next door temple and

design was developed considering the following points;
1.Keeping the building height low and with an open deck on 2F, we can
acquire full of sunlight and natural ventilation. The finish material
of the court permits the rain percolation into the ground.
2.In the inrerior design, we avoid using chemical glue for our health
and adopted reasonable raw materials as the finish.
3.Laying out the building along the river, we could create an intimate
court with a symbolic tree surrounded by the open corridors.
The entrance hall attached to the court is specifically designed to
