Description Mode-Gakuen Spiral Towers:

Mode-Gakuen Spiral Towers located in busy Main Street of Nagoya city in front of Nagoya Station.
The towers are designed for 3 schools that represent the school of fashion design, the computer programming and the medical support. The concept of the towers are derived from enthusiasm of students from 3 schools are twining and rising up to the sky then depart to the real world.

3 buildings of class rooms around the spiral core are called “Wing”.
Its wing-like shape, narrow at the top, changes the rotation axe as they rise and create an organic curve. The towers are highlighted with many ecological features such as double glassed and air flow window system, and natural air ventilation system. The central core of the building is a highly rigid cylindrical structure. Like the central pillar in a house, this structure securely protects the building against twisting and earthquakes. This cylindrical structure is called an inner truss tube and comprises concrete-filed steel tubular columns and braces deployed around the core.

Spiral Towers appears to change shape slightly when viewed from different angles, giving an elegant yet dynamic impression. The strong inner truss tube is visible through gaps between the three wings, highlighting the bold design and structure and demonstrating the overall consistency.
