Namba Parks – Osaka

leave a comment »


Here you can see some pictures of Namba Parks.

The architecture looks great and amazingly the main colour you see is green. Terrace gardens which are very popular in Japan evolved into forests with that project.

It is situated near a train station and consists residential and commercial estates in one big project. Looks like Kanyon in İstanbul however seems to have more to offer.

It was built by Jerde Partnership and won the award for Urban Land Institute Award of Excellence.

with one comment

Japan is known for respect to elderly citizens of the community. 

They know show it in their homes for elderly.

Town of Mishima which looks up to Mount Fuji built this architectural wonder for the elderly citizens.

It cost 7 million dollars and here is some more info from World Architecture News site:

“The architects aim was to create an environment where not only aged residents but also their families and carers are inspired through experiencing seasonal transitions and by the beauty of the scenery, making for a joyful experience and allowing the recovery of body and mind.”
