As a part of his ongoing film series about Japanese architecture, French architect and filmmaker Vincent Hecht has created this visual exploration of Kazuyo Sejima’s Shibaura House. Completed in 2011, this five-story office space is walled almost entirely in glass and features double-height, split-level floors that showcase the paths of travel through the building. The building also features a public cafe on the ground floor and a roof terrace.
