Late last year a new multi-retail space in Sapporo called Moma Place opened. It’s the latest project by Sapporo-based architectural studio Akasaka Shinichiro Atelier. The space includes shops, cafes, galleries and a restaurant, the interiors of which were all designed by the architects as well.

It’s like a mini-mall, except, aesthetically, it far exceeds any mall I have seen in the States.
