This beautiful glass structure was designed by Tokyo-based firm Junya Ishigami and Associates
for the Kanagawa Institute of Technology in Japan. Despite the practical trend in constructing earthquake-proof buildings in Japan, this studio
has a lovely full-length glass facade with rows of skylights running the entire length of the roof. The roof is supported by 305 erratically - yet deliberately - placed columns. The placement of the columns is to allow the space to be used for varying purposes over time, while still creating natural boundaries and spaces.
