Architect Emmanuelle Moureaux has designed this delightful structure for – would you believe? – a bank. The new Sugamo Shinkin Bank in Tokyo, Japan, sports a façade with a grid of projecting and recessed cubes painted in bright colours. Lavender bushes and olive trees have been planted in the deepest cubes.
