CityLife skyscraper : Endless Tower Milan
The tower design consists of a modular system which can be repeated indefinitely. The basic module is a long, narrow (24 by 61.5 meters) volume of 6 office floors. The narrow proportions of the plan are intended to make the volume of the tower appear slimmer. The side facades are completely glazed, revealing the glass elevators.

World Architecture Festival Awards : Super jury leader 2010

This architect worked under Kenzo Tange before establishing his own architecture firm in 1963.

His early projects were influenced by European experiences with a style mixed between “New Brutalism” & “Metabolist Architecture” (Oita Medical Hall, 1959-60) according to Reyner Banham. His style continued to evolve with buildings such as the Fujimi Country Club (1973–74) and Kitakyushu Central Library (1973–74). Later he developed a more modernistic style with buildings such as the Art Tower of Mito (1986–90) and Domus-Casa del Hombre (1991-1995).
