1. Shinsaibashi PARCO and Daimaru Shinsaibashi received the Osaka Mayor's Award for 41st Osaka City Landscape Architecture.
We received comments from the review committee consisting of eight experts. Comments are below.
“The Daimaru Shinsaibashi store emphasizes Volis' traditional geometric patterns and piles them up on the rooftop floor. Shinsaibashi PARCO has a modern design with the theme of drapes. Entries in which the two buildings are paired create a striking view of the city and are wonderful. In particular, the night view from Midosuji Street has a wonderful effect because of the brilliance of the two buildings. The essence of urban landscapes is to perceive the cityscape as a block, not just one building, but two or three buildings in a row.”
