JSt Product Complex

Mixed Use Winner: jst product complex by Osamu Morishita, japan


Project: JST Product Complex
Location: Tsuyama, Okayama Prefecture, Japan
Architect: Osamu Morishita
Client: J.S.T. Global Headquarters

This 60m, 13-storey high sustainable building incorporates a factory, warehouse, research and development centre, offices, dormitories, dining halls and various social amenities. The unusual support structure is composed of folded plate steel which serves as both external support and floorplates whose inner ends are supported on a reinforced-concrete core surrounding a long circulation void.

The judges said: ‘This bravura combination of multiple uses is expressed in a confident piece of architecture for a manufacturer owner-occupier.’
