FUKUOKA HOTEL , Fukuoka,  Japan

Located along the coast of Japan, this 1000+ room resort hotel also includes retail, restaurants, casinos, a health club and a wedding chapel. The design was based on the proximity to the water, ensuring water views for all guest rooms. The evocative outline is reminiscent of the dynamic form of waves, creating the changing patterns of light that are reflected throughout the day.

Joshua Cohn was the Lead Designer for this competition while at SOM.
