Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Minoru Mori (born August 24, 1934) is considered to be Japan's most powerful and influential building tycoon. He joined his father, Taikichiro's, real estate business after graduating from Tokyo University and is now president and CEO of Mori Building, of which he and his older brother Kei's (a university professor) families own 100%. He owns 12.74% of Sunwood Corporation. The family name is found on many real estate developments in Japan. Minoru and his brother Akira have been listed on the Forbes list of the world's richest men. His largest project to date is the Roppongi Hills development in Tokyo which opened in 2003. The Shanghai World Financial Center, which is China's tallest building, was completed in 2008. Mori acknowledges the influence of Le Corbusier but believes he has surpassed the Swiss architect's urban designs, particularly in the Roppongi Hills project.show more
