Tokyo Research - Q-Front Analysis

Q-Front that borders the scramble has many ambiguous conditions concerning the varied program it contains as well as its different entrance points. Additionally, as one moves below ground, the B1 level is appropriated within the street thickness and is thus, completely camouflaged from without

The building has several types of circulation - primary, secondary and tertiary that decrease in public accessibility as one moves inward

Im still working on the best way to categorize these different effects in addition to a more detailed study of the above and below ground connections around the scramble but maybe your feedback will help clarify how best to go about it.

Hi Manijeh. I think you have made a good job surveying the mechanisms in place but could you give us a more speculative account of how they work? I think then we will have an interesting and useful comparison to the London work. Keep going! Thanks for posting- Jonathan

Hi Manijeh. Good yet dry analyses of the building.
I'm interested where it becomes intriguing; and i think you have not drawn that. The merging AND yet not merging of the different programs is what makes this building so peculiar, so Tokyo
The spatial/ material / organizational resolution of the (not)merging should in my opinion in all drawings.
