PROJECT

Ikebukuro Nishiguchi park GLOBAL RING

This was a refurbishment project to transform Ikebukuro Nishiguchi Park into a “theater park.” Centering on a “global ring” measuring 35m across modeled after a round pond that used to be here, this project created a new icon and a new flow of people in the heart of the city. Lighting and acoustic equipment installed on the ring and a stage fitted with acoustic reflector panels allow bona fide classical concerts to be held. This is a new kind of urban park that can serve as a children’s playground centered around a fountain, or a “theater park” for enjoying performances while having a glass of wine at a cafe.
