robots in disguise

designed by kiyonori kikutake, the sofitel tower in ueno tokyo certainly is a unique structure.

an online tourist advertisement gives their interpretation of the design... "Seen with your eyes, the structure appears to be a stack of five trapeziums. Seen with your mind, it becomes a cross between a Japanese temple and the tree of life"

sushi zume's interpretation... 'seen with your eyes it looks like a big christmas tree (or a really awesome place to own an apartment). Seen with your eyes crossed and head tilted a little to the side it becomes,  Optimus Prime, leader of the Autobots, and the greatest warrior in the history of the Transformers.
