I have already posted two entries about Jean Nouvel design;Dentsu HQ building in shelf.tokkyo. It’s great to see his work in Tokyo. The back of that building is flat shape. It’s totally different form between the front and back. One of corner side is very sharp edge, but another side is like egg. The design of that building includes two contradictory concepts, and he designed to sophisticated structure with the two concepts. I feel it’s dialectic, and I understood his concept of works was not American modernism, but European contemporary idea. And I think his idea is very much in Tokyo, which has very long history. It’s very complicated. So, I think his style is very important to match the design into Tokyo.
