Kazuyo Sejima is designing a new express train for Japan. Commissioned by Seibu Group, the Limited Express train would be a "friendly" addition to the company's "Red Arrow" series, which so far boasts brightly colored, traditional designs that stand out from the surroundings.
Much like Sejima's architecture, the initial concept reveals a light, semi-transparent design that allows the train to blend into the landscape.
The Pritzker Prize-winning architect and co-founder of SANAA is responsible for designing the train's exterior and interior. It is expected to complete in 2018.
