The Island of Urban Renaissance by nim

These are some internal and external views of the Harumi Island, where the UR is based. The place contains a mish-mash of styles; concluding with this “Brindley Place” (Birmingham, UK) style garden. This is not a “Zen” garden by any means of the word- but the presence of a small river, a delicate water fountain, and a bending bridge are very suggestive of this popular Japanese style. Both the internal and external spaces are very polished- it is almost like the island is a 3D travel brochure; corporate in its majesty. Alas this is not the true Tokyo- we wanted to see something more Raw…*insert sushi joke here*
