Prolific Japanese design studio Nendo has now moved into urban design, unveiling its massive CoFuFun plaza near Kyoto.
The plaza – located outside of Tenri Station in Japan’s Nara prefecture – is the studio’s largest architecture project after its renovation of the Siam Discovery shopping centre in Bangkok last year. It is also Nendo‘s first public space.
The studio created the master plan for the 6000-square-metre site at Tenri Station, which was previously unused.
“It took three years to finish and it’s one of our first and one of our biggest pieces of architecture.”
