Jury-rating (extract): »As a high-rise and an educational institute in a dense downtown location the Mode Gakuen Cocoon Tower is unique in trying to define a new typology in quite unprecedented terrain. The building sets a new standard by incorporating the field of education into the world of high-rises, hitherto the preserve of offices and residences.«
