Architect Kuma Kengo's Bank Building Unveiled in Nagoya


Nagoya, June 27 (Jiji Press)—Hekikai Shinkin Bank unveiled Tuesday a new branch building in Nagoya designed by architect Kuma Kengo, the designer for the new National Stadium, the main arena for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The Anjō, Aichi Prefecture-based regional bank's seven-story Misono branch building, located in Naka Ward of Nagoya in the same central Japan prefecture, features Kuma's trademark Japanese modern style design, with many long planks diagonally attached on glass walls and tall trees planted at a "green void" corner of the building.
