ShinQs is the brand name for this new entertainment city that is not just the younger crowd. The building is supposed to bring a new and innovative combination of shopping, dining, entertainment and business to the Shibuya area. The building itself has many large television displays, colorful lighting and animations, and is designed to be energy efficient for electrical and heating.
|Front Atrium of Hikarie|
The eighth floor of the Hikarie Centre is the museum / display floor that is devoted to contemporary art and design. The floor is divided up by art galleries and is not something you usually find in a mall. The design firm D&Department Project is a hub to all of this with a focus on products from around all of Japan. Their shops and galleries include a designer travel store, a museum, and café. Another part of the floor is a exhibition space called Cube managed by Art Front Tokyo. Also here is a workspace called Creative Lounge MOV for artists, designers and other creative types to frequent.
