A presentation on EDAW's landscape architecture for the Tokyo Midtown project. An inspiring project in a city hard pressed for public green. Half of the
ten twenty-five-acre site is dedicated to public open space, including parks, plazas, promenades, and streetscapes.
The primary developer is Mitsui Fudosan, working in concert with several partners. The project was designed by architectural firms Nikken Sekkei and Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, with landscape architecture of the surrounding new 4-hectare (10-acre) public park designed by EDAW, the Suntory Museum of Art designed by Kengo Kuma, and the design of the retail Galleria handled by the Colorado-based CommArts.
