AE Interests: Carved outer facade features a six-story lobby that draws sunlight to the lower levels that are linked to the region’s pedestrian, business, and public transit system. The 272ft building is separated into three-dimensional pixels to break it down to a human scale. The pixelated façade displays a sequence of soffit surfaces above that are illuminated with warm lighting to create a sense of place at a central atrium. Setbacks at opposite façade allow for green terraces. With respect to the Naka River and Hakata Bay, the pixelated edges are rounded and illuminated in a mix of warm and cool lights to make the building look like a melting ice cube.
