Kyoto station#10

The concept of the Kyoto Station Reconstruction Project is "Kyoto is a gateway to history." Based upon this concept, grid pattern, a characteristic of Heiankyo, is incorporated in design and gates, the symbol of gateway, are arranged at Karasuma square and Muromachi square. V-shaped terraces spread toward east and west. Since center part is covered by atrium made of glass and metal, extensive inner space reflects the sky and the outside is assimilated into the sky
