Painter Lulu Hoar, was absolutely captivated by the overwhelming structure of the Kyoto Station. What she found enigmatic was the idea, the thought that led Hiroshi Hara design this mammoth structure. Being a painter herself, she wanted to capture the Kyoto Station structure in her paintings.

She found it captivating and invigorating. She has made a charcoal painting in an abstract form of the Kyoto station. She titles this as Homage to Hiroshi Hara. This painting is 4.5 feet tall. Along with her minor works, this Homage painting has been installed in the United Kingdom.

Smaller architectural pieces are placed as three dimensional pieces of the Kyoto Station. She has used, Ink, Graphite and charcoal to draw the station. So the entire piece consists of both paintings and 3-D structures which give a very contemporary funky look to the drawing.
