Tokyo Modern Architecture #7

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 am ever keen to photograph. 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.

That’s the generic opener out of the way and it should be noted that all these photographs were taken over five years ago so who knows if these buildings are even around!! 50+ examples have already been covered in this series and here, in no particular order, is the next volume of interesting looking Japanese buildings including the addresses:

1. NHK Symphony Orchestra, 2-16-49 Takanawa, Minato-ku.

2. Shinjuku Rurikoin Byakurengedo, 2-4-3 Yoyogi, Shibuya-ku.

3. Seionkaku, 1-2-12 Ōjihonchō, Kita-ku.

4. Intersect by Lexus Tokyo, 4-21-26 Minamiaoyama, Minato-ku.

5. La Collezione, 6-1-3 Minamiaoyama, Minato-ku.

6. Laforet Museum Harajuku, 1-11-6 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku.

7. Honjo Life Safety Learning Center, 4-6-6 Yokokawa, Sumida-ku.
