Message from our Customer:Nakagin Capsule tower
Nakagin Capsule tower is currently in crisis situation.
This building was built by a famous architect,Kisho Kurokawa,in 1972.
It is a capsule-type apartment house and is very unique.
Now it is a demolition crisis.
We work to protect this wonderful building.
The tour to visit it is one of the activities.
We got a great message from one of our customers.
Thank you so much! Mr JM.
I want to thank you and your organisation for an enjoyable and highly informative guided tour of that Nakagin Capsule Building, last Thursday.
My interest in that construction goes back in time, even before it was constructed. The Metabolist approach to the new world order – now becoming a reality – conditioned my Architectural and Theoretical work from the 1960’s. So to enjoy the chance to enter and appreciate it was most important to me.
Arata Isozaki has written:
One day I noticed two books … sitting side by side on a bookshelf, and realised it is possible that two types of architecture from two different places (spatiality) and times (temporality) can be equidistant from my position, not to mention similar to my methodological preferences. —
So that same idea too had conditioned my Metabolist thinking.
I have a developing Blog – https://space-cell.com/2018/01/29/zen/
that explores this, if it is of interest to you. As the world has become techno home to New Nomads the unique and prophetic Capsule Tower should be known and better appreciated
With my best wishes to you in the ongoing protection and promotion of Nakagin Capsule Tower.
