Nakagin Capsule Tower

Hi everyone...

Recently unique architecture had caught my eyes. When some of my friends post about great building in FB, I will try to search the information and picture. I guess someone had gave me good influence about architecture....(Mrs.Suzy...you're the best~~)

One of the building that caught my eyes is Nakagin Capsule Tower in Tokyo, Japan.  

Nakagin Capsule Tower

It was designed by Japanese architecture, Kisho Kurokawa  and complete in 1972 which was after the Postwar era. This building can be used as office tower and residential for single person at a time. This building represent the Japanese Metabolism, which is a movement in japan at that time. This rare building is the world's first example of capsule architecture built for actual use. The following are the detail pictures about its measurements and interior.
