Plans have been unveiled for Japan’s tallest tower, the 390m Torch Tower in Tokyo.
Designed by Sou Fujimoto, Mitsubishi Estate Company and Mitsubishi Jisho Sekkei, the 63-storey building will take the crown from the 300m-tall Abeno Harukas structure in Osaka.
According to Mitsubishi Jisho Sekkei, the Torch Tower will have 544,000 sq m of floor area and contain offices, commercial facilities, hotels, and cultural and sports facilities.
Sou Fujimoto commented on Instagram that the building would not be a mere "object" but a "place for people".
The tower is due to be completed in 2027.
