Modern buildings can look interesting from outside - slick, polished-looking boxes sitting neatly reaching skyward. Being able to see out is definitely nice, but when you can't upon the windows, it's kind of like being in a fishbowl.
This strangely shaped (built around other buildings) structure is to be a furniture showroom I hear... which is why there seem to be few windows I guess. Sunlight isn't good for furniture and why put in windows if you don't need them(?)...?
And here is the 1932 Okuno Building, built with every single window open-able - and it shows. The building looks more like a living, breathing thing.
