Quilligan Architects enter proposal for Tokyo Fashion Museum Tower
Quilligan Architects have entered a design proposal for a new Fashion museum situated on the world famous Omotesando St in Tokyo. Organised by Arquitectum International the design will compete with other entries in an international design competition. The 100 meter high tower-museum, contains exhibition spaces for display of 20th century fashion history and aims to becoming a landmark for Tokyo.
Quilligan Architects design for the new museum tower starts with a podium and garden to the base providing a direct relationship to the street with clear height over the podium to allow light to adjacent buildings. An L-shaped supporting structure then frames the tower with runway floor towards the bottom above podium, and Sky Garden floor to top floor. In-between cubic display spaces linked with escalators are suspended along the height of the tower. A sky Garden to the top floor with solar collector finishes the tower.


Design Drivers

1. The podium and garden relationship to the street.

2. The clear height over the podium (provides light to adjacent buildings).

3. The L-shaped supporting structure.

4. The cubic display spaces in between the Runway floor and Sky Garden.

5. Sky Garden at top floor to finish with solar collector on top.
