Soaring over Yokohama, this skyscraper remains the tallest building in Japan at 295 meters. Dominating the skyline with its powerful stance, the impressive shape masses around four main flared corners that elegantly slope towards the heavens. The building is home to a 360-degree observation deck offering dramatic views of Mt. Fuji, a 5-star hotel and the world’s second fastest elevators. A tuned mass damper absorbs the building sway under lateral loads focusing the structural design on strength.
