ACROS Fukuoka



ACROS stands for Asian CRossroads Over the Sea, and houses an auditorium, conference centre, and numerous offices.


It was opened in 1994 and was designed by Argentinian architect Emilio Ambasz.


It was built on part of Tenjin Central Park, the last remaining green space in the area, and so it was designed to include a green roof that is an etension of the remaining park


The roof is a series of 15 terraces that rise 60 meters , and are planted with about 4,000 plants of about 76 different species.


This rood garden is open to the public during daylight hours. The interior of the building is a cavernous space rising up to the semi-circular atrium.
