This a new retail building on Omotesando street in Tokyo designed by Dutch architects MVRDV. Gyre, also known as The Swirl, is generated from five identical rectangular floor plates that are rotated on a vertical axis and then trimmed to fit the site on Omotesando street. Besides the big names and ground floor tenants, Chanel and Bulgari, the building will house the first Asian branch of the MoMA Design Store and a large shop for Martin Margiela. Higher up there are smaller shops like a hair dress salon, an exclusive watch shop etc. The top levels contain a series of different restaurants. The interiors of the shops are designed by the different tenants.
