Canal City (inside)

fuk457

I must admit I do like the architecture of Canal City in Fukuoka. It is easy to see the influence of the canyon country of the Colorado Plateau on the design.

Designed by American architect Jon Jerde who also designed the Riverwalk complex in nearby Kokura and the Namba Parks complex in Osaka.

The name Canal City derives from a pool of water that snakes along the interior of the canyonlike interior.

There are several fountains and an area for performances.

I was here a few days ago and there was some type of market going on.
