This is a new facility of the large-scale car driving school built on an artificial
Rokko island in Kobe.
The site is located on an area of transportation and industry where heavy-duty
trucks busily move around and the road and buildings around there are large enough to overwhelm people there.
However, the required apace is only 600sqm and a extremely small volume around there. For facilities to be built on this specific surroundings, I thought that such an image of building covered by solid shell would be most suitable considering the surrounding area.
