Dentsu Building by imladris517 Dentsu Building by imladris517
Dentsu Building, Shiodome, Minato, Tokyo, Japan
213.34 m

Designed by French architect Jean Nouvel and completed in 2002

The building is wedged shaped and that is why it looks very thin on the right hand side of the image [link]

Why would they build it like that?

Thanks very much for the fav : )
The reasons could range from the architect wanting to design something unique to purely functional reasons for example improving structural stability in some regions that might experience specific weather conditions (wind tunnel simulations are usually performed during the design phases to make sure the buildings can stand up to a number of scenarios). I think the answer lies somewhere inbetween since something that looks cool might not always be possible or cheap to construct, but you do want it to stand out : )

Thanks, all those factors together actually make sense now that I think about it...although it appears more on the fancyside than preparationside. Then again it DOES look like it's building to take on SOMETHING...maybe it's just the angle the shot was taken from :p Makes people wonder, it really does...

I think so too, the side view of the building (seen in the link above) shows that it curves as well which makes something pretty impressive to look at from different angles : )
