Statement from the iF DESIGN AWARD 2020 jurors

Ginza Sony Park in Tokyo is not a new building at all. Instead, the project dismantles the iconic high-rise Sony building and reimagines the space with new constructions and concepts. This wide-ranging and imaginative project reacts flexibly to the usage pattern and requirements of local residents. Bold, brilliant and poised for the future!
