Koizumi Sangyo is a manufacturer of lamps and lighting equipment. For this project, the company headquarters in Tokyo, Eisenman worked along with Kojiro Kitayama, who is the half brother of Tadao Ando (yes, the world is a handkerchief). In fact, in the late 80's early 90s, there was a good relationship between Eiseman and Ando, ??and the latter introduced him to his brother. Koizumi Lighting Theater is 8-storey complex. In the first 5 floors, is the exhibition of products, while in the last 3, are the offices. Kitayama designed a concrete box, a typical Japanese office block. Eisenman used this structure as context and "attacked" it with a series of small cubes rotated in various directions in space. Features of this clash of geometries are evident both inside and outside the building.
