Japan to Launch Invisible Train in 2018

Japan to Launch Invisible Train in 2018 :One of Japan’s top architects has reportedly designed a train that is virtually invisible to onlookers, set to roll out on tracks around Tokyo in 2018.

Kazuyo Sejima designed the train to “blend into the landscape” of both urban and rural environments using “hyper-reflective materials”.

The Japanese architect stated in a press release that “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.” She has been commissioned the design of the trains as part of Japanese railway company Seibu Holding’s 100th anniversary. The Seibu Group operates 180 km of railway networks in the region around Tokyo. Commuters will be able to ride the train, known as the Red Arrow, on a limited number of routes in Japan from 2018.
Mrs. Sejima
Mrs. Sejima has worked on prize-winning designs in the past including the Rolex Learning Centre in Lausanne, Switzerland. She is a Pritzker Architecture Prize Laureate, known for her work with Japanese architects SANAA.
