Ginza Sony Park / Public Space by Sony

Discipline: Architecture

A city center public space by a private company. The middle phase of rebuilding the Sony Building, a former landmark in Japan’s preeminent town Ginza, opens the space as a park without erecting the new building right away. The above-ground part of the old building was dismantled, and a three-dimensional park extending underground was created, with the concept of blank spaces. The park redefines city center parks by serving as a social platform to generate interaction, with plenty of blank spaces, experimental stores, and events to offer visitors lots of chance encounters. In the next phase, the new building also has the concept of a “park.”

  • DATE OF LAUNCH 2018

  • DEVELOPMENT TIME Other duration

  • TARGET REGIONS Specific country/region: Japan ( and visitors from the world )

  • TARGET GROUPS Consumer / User

Ginza Sony Park in Tokyo is not a new building at all. Instead, the project dismantles the iconic high-rise Sony building and reimagines the space with new constructions and concepts. This wide-ranging and imaginative project reacts flexibly to the usage pattern and requirements of local residents. Bold, brilliant and poised for the future!
