Starting at Shimbashi Station, we’ll talk about the history of the area and visit the Nakagin Capsule Tower. It’s a prime example of what’s known as Metabolism Architecture, a movement from the 1960s and 70s that’s focused on the futuristic planning by Japanese architects.The unique tower is comprised of individual, detachable cubes—designed with the idea that people would be able to replace every 25 years. We’ll explore the building and talk about the architect, Kisho Kurokawa, and the future of the tower. We’ll end our journey with a traditional tea ceremony inside one of the 10-square-meter apartments. We’ll drink tea and eat Japanese sweets.
