Collaborating with Tadao Kamei of Nikken Sekkei, MPFP introduced cohesiveness to an originally fragmented landscape centered on a Japanese shopping center and office complex. 

The largest area, a two-level plaza and garden, allowed MPFP to think about the design in terms of verticality.  To this end, they established a system of treillage, derived from traditional Japanese architecture.  Banks of steel are alternated with Ilex to create a sharp white-and-green striping, similar to the banding found on the houses of noblemen in traditional Japanese architecture.  

By intentionally parsing the landscape into discrete elements, MPFP resisted the temptation to fight the existing architecture in order to make a single space read as a whole.  Instead the plaza and its various entrances and exits all read individually as part of a larger idea that, like music, comes into being and then fades away.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
