Official opening GYRE Shopping Center November 1st, the Gyre Shopping Center in Tokyo – one of the latest realizations of MVRDV – will officially be opened. After the Matsudai Cultural Village Center, Niigata (2002), the Gyre is MVRDV’s second building in Japan and the first realized building by a Dutch architect in Tokyo.

The luxurious shopping center - developed in close collaboration with Takenaka Corporation - is situated in the Omotesando district, one of Tokyo’s main commercial areas. Next to the big brands and ground floor tenants like Chanel and Bulgari, the building accommodates the first Asian branch of the MoMA Design Store and a large shop for Martin Margiela. On the higher levels smaller shops are situated, such as a hair dress salon, an exclusive watch shop etc. The top levels contain a series of different restaurants.
