Nara Centennial Hall, Nara

“A creature like building cladded in traditional fish-scale like ibushi style tiles, must have looked completely futuristic as it emerged from the most intriguing pantadome system. It was the first building of the kind where precast concrete panels were used to erect both walls and roof simultaneously.

The overall appearance, to Isozaki’s credit, mixes successfully tradition and future and still feels contemporary all those years later.” (Extracted from the Mimoa Project Page I created: here)
