This week AD On The Streets takes you to the architecturally dense city of Tokyo, Japan to visit M2, the first major commission of japanese renowned architect Kengo Kuma.

The 4,482.15sqm building was completed in 1991, and it was designed as Matsuda’s (Mazda) car salesroom. It now operates as a funeral hall. More images available on Flickr. Post modernism to the max.
