Architect ’s design for the next generation of trains has them covered in a semi-reflective metallic skin which gives them the impression that they are a part of the surrounding scenery.

The winner said he wanted the trains to ‘co-exist with this variety of scenery.’

“The limited express travels in a variety of different sceneries, from the mountains of Chichibu to the middle of Tokyo, and I thought it would be good if the train could gently co-exist with this variety of scenery.” Sejima said.

The trains will roll out officially on the tracks of Tokyo in 2018.
