Project Description

FROM THE RIBA ROYAL GOLD MEDAL AWARD, 2006:

In the Tower of Winds Ito represents the visual complexity of Tokyo metaphorically in terms of a never-ceasing, ever-changing wind. The tower, a light sculpture that responds to wind speed and directions, was designed years before anyone else explored the use of photo-responsive glass or ‘interactive architecture’ in the same way. The project was completed in 1986.
