‘sarugaku’ commercial complex by akihisa hirata

‘sarugaku’ is the name of a shopping and commercial space designed in tokyo by akihisa hirata. the complex is located in the daikanyama area of tokyo and features a number of commercial tenants. the site is long and skinny and the architects was legally forced to create multiple smaller volumes on the site instead of a single building. the concept behing the design is that each small complex is representative of a mountain in the landscape. the common psace in the center and in between the buildings then becomes a valley. each space is able to overflow into this valley to create a ‘forest of illusion’ as hirata explains.
