Tokyo, March 5, 2021 -- Mori Building announced today that its "Designing Tokyo" brand movie won two GRANDE (grand prix), one GOLD and four SILVER awards during the Asia Pacific Advertising Festival (ADFEST) 2020 awards ceremony

"DESIGNING TOKYO" expresses Mori Building's vision of urban development and its aspirations for the future of Tokyo. The movie features various projects that Mori Building has carried out over the years, vividly recreating urban scenery and culture, including symbolic persons from each era, that were realized through cutting-edge technologies deployed during these projects.

The unique video, which stands apart from conventional advertising expressions, has attracted extensive global acclaim, 35 international awards including the New York ADC Award and The One Show, and 11 prizes in Japan including the ACC Tokyo Creativity Awards and the Galaxy Awards.

Mori Building, since its establishment in 1959, has been actively involved in both the conceptualization and realization of urban evolution. Going forward, the company is committed to its "Create Cities, Nurture Cities" philosophy aimed at contributing to Tokyo's magnetic power as one of the world's greatest cities.

The Asia Pacific Advertising Festival (ADFEST) was founded in 1998 as one of the Asia-Pacific region's leading advertising award programs. ADFEST 2020 attracted more than 2,300 entries in 20 categories from some 260 companies in 28 cities.
