  • The Gundam Statues

Since October 2017, the Gundam RX 0Unicorn sits majestically in front of the DiverCityTokyo Plaza shopping center in Odaiba. It replaced the 18-meter-high Gundam RX-78-2 installed in 2012, which it surpasses by nearly 2 meters. His armor comes alive and lights up several times a day; alternating between the Unicorn configuration and the Destruction configuration. For those nostalgic for the Gundam RX-78-2, a 3-meter-high bronze sculpture representing it has been erected opposite Seibu Kamiigusa Station in Suginami.

The building with its spectacular design reminiscent of Gundam robots is the architect's first major achievement.
