1

The design concept according to Hiroshima is,“ Intimacy; I want to create intimacy between architecture and people. The hollow embraces; softy and gently, like a kangaroo’s pouch. It embraces the light from the top and glows in the early morning, in the midst of the day. This is the ‘intimacy’ I hope to create between architecture and people.”
