Baiso-In Temple, Japan

Tokyo

THE PROJECT

Architect Kengo Kuma’s reinvention of an ancient Tokyo temple incorporates the new temple with a 15 storey office block and apartments. The Buzon DPH® pedestal system has been used to support stone tiles creating a dual-purpose terrace.

By day the terrace seems like any other, however at night the void beneath the tiles fills with water to create a stunning ‘lake’ water feature.
