Osaka「大阪」: Umeda Sky Building「梅田スカイビル」

umeda sky building osaka

Umeda Sky Building「梅田スカイビル」 may not be the highest building in Osaka at 173m height (40 floors), but is certainly one of the city's most recognizable marks. Located at the Northern part of the city, it was originally envisioned as a conceived as a "City of Air", which would have four interconnected and a floating platform on top. Practical considerations brought it down to two, but hey, it's still worth a walk around to judge whether it feels like the floating city it was meant to be, at least in Hiroshi Hara's mind.


El Umeda Sky Building「梅田スカイビル」 mide 173m de altura y no es el más alto de Osaka, pero sí uno de los más interesantes. Son dos torres iguales, de 40 pisos, conectadas en su parte más alta con puentes y una escalera móvil, que cruza el ancho atrio central. Corona el edificio una plataforma de 54 por 54 metros, perforada en su centro por un anillo acristalado

Hiroshi Hara - su arquitecto, quiso dar al edificio la apariencia de una ciudad flotante, para lo cual ideó el uso de cristales especiales en la parte superior del mismo, los cuales reflejan el cielo como paisaje exterior, contrastando con la cerámica opaca de su parte inferior.
