TEPIA is a pavilion introducing and exhibiting the latest in high technology. The scale of the building is kept modest in order to maintain open space on the site (which is part of the Jingu Gaien Park area). In reference to the modern technology introduced in the building's exhibits, aluminum and glass materials dominate the surface composition. Overall, the form is sharply chiseled - an abstract, high-tech image appropriate for the building's program.
