This 170m tall spiralling tower near Nagoya Station houses the schools of fashion design, computer science and medicine. The dynamic form, representing the energy of its students, appears to change shape when viewed from different angles. The classrooms are arranged in 3 wings which twist upwards around a cylindrical core. The central core is visible between the three wings.
