The Palaisozaki is a huge steel and glass parallelepiped, originally built for the Olympic Games of 2006 and for hockey games. Successively it was converted into an arena for concerts and events. The particular disposition of the covering panels, which reflects the surrounding landscape, gives an effect of constant movement to the building, that appears from outside in floating position.
The Palaisozaki was designed by a Japanese architect.
Punti di Vista
These are three sculptures made by the English artist Tony Cragg, who made three bronze columns, each 12 mt high, with a steel soul. The outside structure shows elliptical spirals winding up with a vortex movement.
