In the project, the central building displays the traditional Japanese symbol of the ascending sun.
The solar disk is a symbol of the city, intersected by a bridge that connects the existing part of the city with the projected area.
The rays of this bridge pass through the whole city, performing the role of transport arteries. The parabolic shape of the disc and its large
The surface allows it to be used as a source of solar energy and a communications center. Territory planning
Based on the geometry of the rays - the streets start from the center of the solar disk. There are two traffic interchanges,
A two-level motorway (the lower pedestrian level) and a monorail road.
The complex of multi-level interchanges under the projected territory joins the main roads of Osaka.
