Distorting the Miesian idea of universal space that is moderated by a regular grid of columns held between ground plane and soffit, in this building Ishigami creates something more idiosyncratic, scattering 305 columns within the 45 x 45m rhomboid plan, apparently at random, to create a series of forest-like clearings.
So with a mere three shots per breast (at $1,500-$2,000 a pair), the pectoralis minor is disabled, allowing the rhomboid muscle in the back "to pull up your back and give you better posture and lift your breasts up" (for a few months).
