suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
valmikVYAS+hyungwooKIM: ‘Radial Fluidity’ is a new set of towers and site for Roppongi Hills, Tokyo. The site is transformed into a dynamic and winding flow of circulation with pockets of programmed space.
This is accomplished by intertwining formal qualities throughout the site to create nested spaces which gradually migrate across the site at various speeds. The circulation winds visitors across the Roppongi Dori metro to indoor shopping plazas, outdoor amphitheaters and stepping gardens and up to the hybrid commercial / hotel towers.
