Riken Yamamoto + Field Shop - Fussa City Hall, Fussa, Tokyo (scroll down to read more)
Riken Yamamoto's new Tokyo city hall is a piece of grand public architecture. The large ground floor Forum is a flexible space housing public service counters covered with a publicly accessible Hill Park. The gently undulating topography of the park acts as a structural shell, which is punched through by the two pre-cast office towers. Their bases connect with the park via a fluid and inspired 'skirt' detail, a flowing form finished in the same square tiles as the towers.
