Perforated Floral Facades

The Dear Ginza Building Sticks Out Despite its Side Street Setting

— February 7, 2014 — Art & Design
It were to front on a major street, the Dear Ginza Building could not go unnoticed if you were to pass in front of it; however, this tall and slender structure is actually situated on a smaller city road. Because of its hidden position, the folks at the Amano Design Office endeavored to bring pedestrian attention to this edifice, so an eye-catching facade was necessary.

You cannot see the glass curtain wall windows that run up the height of the building because they're covered by an aluminum skin. The architectural mask is made up of triangular pieces of punched metal that come together to make a crumpled geoform surface. For increased textural intrigue, the small circular perforations that speckle the Dear Ginza Building have been left out in places to suggest the natural shapes of flower petals.
Trend Themes
1. Perforated Facades - Incorporating perforated metal facades into architecture can create dynamic and striking visuals, making for a potential opportunity in the architecture and construction industries.
2. Geometric Facade Designs - Creating unique and geometric facade designs can set structures apart and draw attention, presenting potential opportunities for architects, designers, and construction companies.
3. Exterior Textures - Designing exterior textures on buildings has the potential to stimulate the senses and create interest, opening up opportunities for architects, designers, and construction companies.
Industry Implications
1. Architecture - The trend of incorporating perforated metal facades and geometric designs opens up opportunities for architects to create unique and eye-catching buildings.
2. Construction - With the rise of unique and textured facades, construction companies can offer new services and techniques to create these visually striking exteriors.
3. Interior Design - The use of exterior textures can potentially carry over to interior design, offering opportunities for designers to create unique spaces with varied textures and patterns.
