contributed by viditocho

The Yokohama International Passenger Terminal is situated on Osanbashi Pier, which was originally constructed between 1889 and 1896 and is Yokohama's oldest pier. The project is a nexus between the city and the bay. The site had a pivotal role along the city's waterfront that, if declared a public space, would present Yokohama City with a continuous structure of open public spaces along the waterfront. The building is produced as an extension of the urban ground, constructed as a systematic transformation of the lines of the circulation diagram into a folded and bifurcated surface. These folds produce a roof garden with covered surfaces where the different parts of the program can be hosted.
