Tokyo Global Gateway

Education Center

Inspired by Eero Saarinen's swooping curves of the former TWA Flight Center at  JFK Airport, the design of the entrance represents a starting point for young students to fly into the new globalizing world. As students learn new ways of communicating in English, the aesthetics represent the discovery of a new world and a new self.

The second floor lounge utilizes a wave motif for the glass, along with our molecule tables and cloud seating.
