Project: Osaka MLP
Location: Umekita Osaka City, Japan.
Program: Offices, Retail, entertainment, residential.
Scale: 300,000 m2
Status: Competition Design Submitted.
Concept: The project is envisioned as a Distinctive Urbanism, predicated on the design of unique and memorable spatial experiences. Building typologies, and their heights and footprints, are adapted to a porous, pixelated organization of open space to massing, and are differentiated to various potential programmatic scenarios. Flows on site move between, under and through building mass. Through the systemic correlation of massing, program and landscape, the proposed scheme is integrated within the infrastructural systems both at grade and below ground, merging with the existing urban fabric.
