Nakagin Capsule Tower - Tokyo Architecture

43 comments
1972, Tokyo: the first modular apartments are born.
2 towers, 140 capsules, Kisho Kurokawa's creation became the emblem of Japanese Metabolism. The urge to find new living spaces with the problem of overpopulation made the "compact lifestyle" the most affordable solution.

This is my personal masterpiece. An accurate reproduction of the building: the capsules at the corners have different offsets since they are arranged around the internal staircases. Additionally some capsules break the pattern to provide even lighting to all the residents.

You may not suspect the complexity of this model until you take it apart. Total part count is 548 (15 for the base).

So what are you waiting for? SUPPORT IT ALREADY!
