  1. Leaf-inspired shapes, maybe. But it’s still essentially a giant concrete cube, the same thing ruining the cityscapes of Japan, just packaged a bit nicer.
    “Leaf-inspired”? Get it together, Kyoto. Buildings in wood look nicer, feel warmer, feel more natural, more welcoming, more traditional and cultural.
    If you have to build “modern”, build in steel and glass, with an “ultra-modern” feel to it, not the cold, unwelcoming, concrete aesthetic of the 50s-60s. Your concept of “modern” is way outdated.
