||The building is on a back street in the liveliest district in Tokyo. A
well-known American store selling outdoor products is on the first and second floors, and an office for a planner/producer is on the third floor. The plan is to rebuild the structure in ten years to keep up with expected future changes in the district. The aim therefore was to minimize the cost, make the building easy to dismantle and recycle, use recycled materials, minimize energy costs and avoid using materials that are harmful to the environment.
