Wai Think Tank has entered the Fashion Museum Competition, Tokyo's latest call for a stylish emporium on the chic Omotesando Street. The event called for a structure that would stand at 100 meters, divided up on the interior with curated exhibition spaces.

The future Fashion Museum will prove to be a Tokyo trademark. The architects are intent on attracting large crowds to the site, spurring innovation and productivity on behalf of international couturiers. The winning blueprints will as such be vital to the success of the project.

Wai Think Tank has chosen to work with a vertical layout. Elevators, stacked platforms and escalators will transport visitors up and down the museum. This "floating boutique" concept will spark a novel consumer experience.
