“Impressive presentation, beautiful renderings, and detailed drawings. The whole design looks very matured and seems that this design can be realized very soon. But, because this is idea competition, so I expect more experimental or challenging ideas, more than mature realistic ideas. If this proposal could include a little bit more experimental design, it would be a perfect proposal.” _ Shuhei Aoyama
