Amazing Green Building: The ACROS Fukuoka


In Fukuoka City in Japan, there's an amazing building called "ACROS Fukuoka" with two very distinct sides: one side looks like a conventional office building with glass walls, but on the other side there is a huge terraced roof that merges with a park.

The garden terraces, which reach up to about 60 meters above the ground, contain some 35,000 plants representing 76 species. A huge semicircular atrium and the triangular lobby provide contrast to the greenery, in this space is a symphony hall, offices and shops.

More information and images after the jump.
