ryszard rychlicki and agnieszka nowak: fashion museum omotesando, tokyo

fashion museum omotesando street, tokyo by h3ar

polish designers ryszard rychlicki and agnieszka nowak of h3ar created a 100 m tall tower with 400 sq. meters of floors for their proposal for the fashion museum in omotesando street, tokyo. the proposal was part of the international architecture competition, organized by arquitectum.

a feature of the building is its lines in the structure of the tower – a clear gesture of form. considering the limited areas of storey’s they decided to play around with the arrangement and the type of function, to shape the mass of the building properly. they achieved our objective by displacing formal communication passages within the tower to its left side. its modular spatial arrangement defines the shape of the mass. the skeleton of the building is wrapped with soft forms of stories. the module of a core communication has been shifted axially by 10 degrees, thus causing full storey’s to interconnect with mezzanines. the skeleton of the building also consists of emergency routes, elevators, vertical pipelines and media supply channels.
