Architect Seiichi Shirai studied philosophy at Berlin University. After returning to Japan in 1935, he worked in architectural design, adopting the German tradition seen in German residential architecture. He received an award from the Japan Art Academy. He was appraised for his figurative philosophy in an architectural style embracing ancient and medieval times in the West and the Orient.
The Japan Sign Design Association presented the NOA BLDG with the 9th SDA award and the B3 gold prize in recognition of this achievement.
