This tower project for the Fukoku insurance company takes inspiration from the profile of agigantic tree whose roots proliferate on the surface of the ground. Splayed at its base, thetower’s outline tapers elegantly as it rises, gracing the city’s skyline with a verticalasymptote. The contrast between the structure’s base and upper regions is accentuatedby the treatment of the building’s “bark”. Broad “wood chips” on the lower levelsgradually give way to a sleek wall. The glass facade is worked into a crescendo of encrustedmirrors at the base, reflecting the colors of the sky and the surrounding environment.Situated at the exit of Osaka’s main train station, the building will become a lastinglandmark in the urban landscape.
