For all its good points Tokyo ain’t half one ugly looking city with buildings pretty much erected (and pulled down) willy nilly without any thought to the environment around it. However, amid all the chaos of such a concrete jungle there are a fair few examples of modern architecture which I have been photographing over the last few months. Now, I am certainly no expert on such a topic but have enjoyed going around capturing the interesting and weird designs of some of these buildings.
This hobby started off just as a few random shots on Facebook before I decided to collate them all in one album which I have since been adding to and will hopefully continue to do so. Here, in no particular order, are ten examples I have come across including the addresses:
1. Nakagin Capsule Tower, 8-16-10 Ginza, Chuo-ku.
2. Audi Forum Tokyo, 6-12-18 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku.
3. Tokyo Plaza Omotesando Harajuku, 4-30-3 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku.
4. St Mary’s Cathedral, 3-5-16 Sekiguchi, Bunkyo-ku.
5. 21-21 Design Sight, 9-7-6 Akasaka, Minato-ku.
6. Aoyama Technical College, 7-9 Uguisudanicho, Shibuya-ku.
7. Tod’s Boutique, 5-1-5 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku.
8. The Shizuoka Press and Broadcasting Center, 8-3-7 Ginza, Chuo-ku.
9. Hinomaru Driving School, 1-6-27 Mita, Meguro.
10. Reversible Destiny Lofts, 2-2-8 Osawa, Mitaka-ku.
