Hillside Terrace Complex I-Ⅵ

The Hillside Terrace Complex is a collective form that has developed over seven phases since 1969, corresponding to the continuously changing circumstances of Tokyo. A variety of design strategies are used to create its unique atmosphere, including deference to subtle topographical changes, spatial layering, and the creation of protected exterior public space. The success of this project is a result of spatial and architectural means - scale, transparency, etc.- as well the programmatic development of public life. A variety of formal and informal events held in this part of the city create life in and around Hillside Terrace, combining with the architecture to make it a unique part of the Tokyo cityscape.
