Harry Potter author JK Rowling would have rendered a makeover for Hogwarts Express had she understood of designer KazuyoSejima.

A Japanese designer who is known for special glass principles, Sejima is now creating a train for Japan that is nearly undetectable. Sejima was commissioned to design the train for the Seibu Group’s centennial. The train will be out by 2018.

Japan has actually constantly stayed ahead of other countries in train development.

When Sejima was very first informed about the job, Seibu authorities determined her that they desired a new minimal express train like absolutely nothing seen prior to.

Although Sejima has actually dealt with amazing projects like the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, and Louvre-Lens in France, she discovered this idea unusual.

This is, of course, my first venture into designing a restricted reveal train. I think the most significant difference with conventional architecture is that the train is able to travel to a variety of areas. The restricted express journeys in a variety of various sceneries, from the mountains of Chichibu, to the middle of Tokyo, and I believed it would be great if the train might carefully co-exist with this range of scenery, stated Sejima in a press note.

Generally, individuals want to go on a train to reach a particular location, but Japan s undetectable train is a destination in itself.

Seibu Railways, in its current press note, said that it is working hard to supply a new design limited express train that will not only be enjoyable to ride, however likewise enjoyable to watch as it mixes into the landscapes. The trip will also show to be trouble-free and it will meet the requirements of various sort of travelers, including those commuting to and from work and school in addition to tourists.

We want to not simply design the shape and kind of a way of transportation, however reveal a brand-new value for the minimal express that is created together through involvement with everyone. We aim for a design that includes spaces, atmosphere and appearance such that hanging out on the limited express will itself be a location objective, reiterated Seibu in the press note.

Sejima will consist of semi-transparent and mirrored surface areas to help the train mix with the surrounding landscape.
