9. Kanagawa Institute of Technology Workshop, Tokyo

Located on the campus of Kanagawa Institute of Technology, this building, if it can be called so, is one of the most transparent constructions out there. It was designed by Junya Ishigami and Associates. The building is essentially a single room about 2000 square meters large. It is composed of only glass panels and white steel columns of varying size and shape. The whole design gives a sense of forest rather than a building.
