I got something of a shock last week when someone told me that Shin Takamatsu’s Syntax building in Kyoto was demolished a few years ago. But it is true, as this Flickr photo of a recently vacated lot attests. Not enough lettable area I guess.
I thought it would be good to see what could have replaced such a fine building. Surely they would have gone the extra mile with it. Spending Saturday morning driving around Kyoto using Google’s street view, I finally stumbled across it when I remembered it was close to the Botanical Gardens. So here it is. Hmmm.
