Mostly underground, Oasis 21, is a modern architectural space set around an oval plaza in Nagoya Japan. The aim of the £76m project was to make an environmentally friendly area that makes the most of the surrounding natural space.
As such, the area boasts a large green recreational space, including a flower garden on the sloped lawns. The centrepiece is a striking large, oval roof glass roof structure supported by four columns.
The oval glass structure, nicknamed “Aqueous Starship”, and is an extraordinary example of structural, walk-on glass. Romag were contacted by client YKK Architectural Products to supply the glass to meet the complex needs of the design.
