Nakagin Capsule Tower by Kisho Kurokawa | Tokyo, Japan
Reputed to be the world’s first structure that implemented the innovative idea of capsule architecture, Kisho Kurokawa designed the Nakagin Capsule Tower based off of his sustainability concept called “Metabolism”, encasing his vision of an architectural movement representative of organic growth and restructuring within buildings.
The Nakagin Capsule Tower is a “mixed-system” structure, utilizing both traditional architecture with modern technology within one entity. It is made of two reinforced concrete and steel frame pillars of asymmetric heights, both housing public utilities such as stairs, elevators, plumbing, and electrical systems (Kurokawa 105).
