Unusual Green Architecture In Japan: Namba Parks

In a city with few green spaces, Namba Parks is a welcome swath of green for the inhabitants of Osaka.

The complex stands where Osaka’s baseball stadium used to be until 2003, and consists of a 30-floor skyscraper, Parks Tower, and a shopping mall with eight floors of terraced gardens.

The sloping park connects to the street, welcoming passers-by to enjoy its groves of trees, clusters of rocks, cliffs, lawn, streams, waterfalls, ponds and outdoor terraces.
