Description   To commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the founding of Tokyo Denki University, the Tokyo Senju Campus Phaseâ… was completed in April of 2012. Subsequently its second phase was completed in April of 2017. A typical composition of an urban redevelopment project may be imagined to be composed of low-rises along a public road and a recessed tower, following a district guideline. However, this project is designed with highly open public spaces named “Plaza” and “Agora” (internalized by the Phase II buildings) in order to create a cityscape open to the neighborhood community while having a distinct identity. The facade of the mid- and high-rises is composed of ceramic frit glass, white spandrel panels, aluminum sash, and pre-cast concrete-ranging in various shades of white-to create a fresh silhouette of white towers emerging from a chaotic cityscape. The high-performance air-flow window system was the university's first technological experiment to implement natural ventilation to the facade and minimize the perimeter thermal load.
