This amazing crystalline building is served as a studio and workplace for students at the Kanagawa Institute of Technology (KAIT) (Kanagawa kōka daigaku), a private university in Atsugi, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. The studio is built of glass from the floor to the ceiling that provides a feeling of working outside while you are inside. The large open floor plan preserves the building's sense of transparency as the viewer's eye can see through uninterrupted space. The stripped roof of skylights is supported by 305 columns of various sizes.
Made in 2007, this elegant rectangular studio is designed by Junya Ishigami and Associates, Tokyo-based architecture firm. Ishigami describes the whole spatial atmosphere is like a "boundless landscape" that filled with plants and coupled with an overall sense of lightness and transparency.
The building gives an inspiration, doesn't it?
