Akihabara Dai Building
It is the height of irony that the neighborhood that inspired Ridley Scott's 1982 film "Blade Runner" lacks the looming skyscrapers that were featured so prominently in the film. The Akihabara Dai Building is one of the few, and it is the architectural opposite of those in the neighborhood where Harrison Ford's character plied his trade. Instead of being a wide, dark, fire-belching, sun-blocking monstrosity, this building is a blue and crystal, light-reflecting, healthy addition to the neighborhood. At 31 stories, it's much taller than most of the other buildings in the area, but its glass facade reflects a lot of light into the dank alleys nearby. At its lower levels, the curtain wall is recessed, creating a gallery and allowing even more natural light to filter into the streets and sidewalks.
