Optical Glass House constructed by Hishori Nakamura. The idea behind this installation is to create an oasis within the center of Hiroshima,  a busy and loud area. The Glass faceade insulates the noise from the house creating a peaceful place. 6,000 pieces of solid glass were used to create this beautiful facade. Having completed this, the architect created a garden visible to any part of the house and not having visble access to cars or other buildings. A tranquil place that most people need nowdays as the stress in big cities is intense. The istallation is 330 square meters and completed on March of 2012. The result is impressive. Enjoy.
