We had a week in Tokyo after the finish of 100% design to tour the city. We got to visit a lot of contemporary buildings that I had always wanted to see. Here are a couple of my pictures. From left to right: Tod’s by Toyo Ito, Prada by Herzog & de Meuron, Swatch by Shigeru Ban, Nagakin Capsule Tower by Kurokawa, International Forum by Viñoly, and the Design Festa building.
Seeing these buildings in person wasn’t actually much more impressive then seeing them on paper. We found the traditional architecture we visited much more impressive. Some images of that coming in tokyo part 3.
