  1. Because of the unique architecture, the corridor appear to have some kind of irregular curve, even though it’s a straight path. The light also gives it an unique feature. This is an example of how amazing architecture is the foundation of great interior design.

  2. Beyond a shadow of a doubt Toyo Ito is from one of the most talented architect not only in Japan but around the globe as well. His use of abstract design for buildings is the key point of his fame. Since 1970, Toyo started receiving international acclaim and around from last 4 decades world is having a high regard for his work. Za-Koenji Public Theatre by Toyo Ito in no doubt is from one of his master peace. I wish I was there to visit it.
