元町・中華街駅 Motomachi station


ランドスケープ事務所との打ち合わせで、元町・中華街へ。駅空間のコンセプトデザインは、グラフィックデザイナーの松田行正氏と編集者の鈴木明氏、駅舎の設計は建築家の伊東豊雄氏。メタリックな輝きに包まれて近未来的な地下空間。昔の街並みや、黒船が壁面に描かれていて、街の歴史を感じられる。


I went to Motomachi station with a meeting with the landscape office. Concept design of station space is graphic designer Mr. Yukimasa Matsuda and editor Mr. Akira Suzuki, and the design of the station building is architect Toyo Ito. It was wrapped in a metallic shine and was a near future futuristic underground space. The old cityscape and black ships were drawn on the walls and I felt the history of the city.
