Long Description:
Arata Isozaki was born in Japan, and thus wanted to express a yin-yang theory of positive and negative space when he designed the Team Disney Building in Orlando, Florida. Also, because the offices were to be used by time-conscious executives, he wanted the architecture to make a statement about time.

Serving as offices for the Walt Disney Corporation, the Team Disney Building is a startling landmark on the otherwise barren stretch of Florida's Route I-4. The oddly looped gateway suggests gigantic Mickey Mouse ears. At the building's core, a 120-foot sphere cylinder forms the previous world's largest sundial (now second largest). Inside the cylinder is a serene Japanese rock garden.

Isozaki's Team Disney design won a prestigious National Honor Award from the AIA in 1992.
