Map
2-1-2 Koenji-Kita, Suginami, Tokyo, 166-0002, Japan

Set in a residential downtown-Tokyo neighborhood, Toyo Ito’s design of the new Za-Koenji public theater is unabashedly theatrical. The building is mysterious and all purple-black, its tentlike roof and walls punctuated by several hundred porthole-style windows. Inside are two small theaters and numerous practice rooms, as well as a lobby and other public spaces lit up by the playful round windows and inset lights.
