Mirrors have a most amazing effect on space. While a vast majority of the time mirrors are spent making spaces look bigger– this entrance to the new Tokyu Plaza Omotesando Harajuku (or Omohara) is chock-full of fragmented mirror pieces that would be enough to get you lost if you weren’t riding on the escalator.
Japanese architect Hiroshi Nakamura was the mastermind behind this massive shopping center project; with this mirrored tunnel being only a small fraction of what went into all of the structure. From the outside, it looks like an amazing front to be explored. Once inside, it’s as if a whole new exterior is opening up before your eyes. the fragments seem to line up ever so perfectly so as not to be able to tell real from reflected. A great concept and fun entrance/exit idea!
