Mikimono building? Is the Micky Mouse building?

I comment it, just because the facade has the shape of a slice of cheese. =O))

Lovely the design of Ito Toyo!!!

Thanks for the comments, everyone:-))
tara,
He is one of the most creative architect in Japan now.
His works tend to be light and well mix the design with the structure.

teo,
Oh, you took the photo of this building, too! I wish I see them. If you have a chance to go to Singapore, it is better to go and see a big shopping mall, VivoCity, designed by Toyo Ito.

raquel,
Looking at the windows carefully and close, you can see many scars from many mice's bites!! When this building was under construction, a man watched many small mice work to open the windows at night, I hear!! Oh, just kidding! Have a nice weekend.

chedwick,
thanks for the compliment:-)) The building at night is also better!

It looks like a big piece of cheese. Very innovative and striking architecture. I love it.

It does look like a big piece of cheese. I might prefer an artichoke building. :)
