Omotesando Street is an avenue in Tokyo and home to many upscale shops featuring several international brand outlets. Hence, the street is sometimes referred to as 'Tokyo's Champs-Élysées'. On this prime location, Japanese architect duo Kazuyo Sejima and Ryue Nishizawa, known collectively as SANAA, has designed the building that accommodates a store for fashion retailer Dior. The building is gift-wrapped in a translucent skin that allows the building underneath to show through. The effect is achieved by using clear glass on the outside and a second displaced layer of translucent acrylic on the inside.
