Tokyu Toyoko-Line Shibuya Station, Tokyo, 2008
This new underground Shibuya station links the Tokyo Metro Fukutoshin Line and the Tokyu Toyoko Line. Ando proposed an egg-shaped station space in the image of a "hypogenous ship" inserted into the underground infrastructure like one box nested inside another. A void space connecting the concourse on the second basement level with the platforms on the fifth basement level is at the center of the egg. This dynamic spatial composition also serves as a device for naturally ventilating the underground station.
