Nissei Hibiya Building (Nissei Theatre)
- Togo MURANO
- Obayashi Corporation
- This was built to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of Nippon Life Insurance Company.Exterior is a stylistic representation covered by Mikage stone, Japanese granite and massive columns. On the other hands, in the Nissey theatre, walls and ceilings covered by Mosaic and Acoya shell (mother of pearl) are waving like a cave undersea.This is a highest peak of the Murano work from which original Murano's technique is seen everywhere though unsuitable points for the expression of the modernism brewed the cause of discussions at that time.
