Photographer Noritaka Minami explores the architectural heritage of Tokio tells us a story of futuristic Nakagin Capsule Tower designed by Kisho Kurokawa in 1972. . As the first capsule apartment in history constructed for everyday use, the Nakagin Capsule Tower is considered the most ambitious attempt in implementing the principles of Metabolism (the movement aimed to formulate flexible designs that facilitate continual growth and renewal of architecture). This prototype for a new lifestyle for the 21st Century ultimately proved to be an exception rather than the rule. Now considered an obsolete model of living, the Nakagin Capsule Tower faces the threat of demolition to make way for a conventional apartment complex on the site. This photographic series below investigates the building as it faces an uncertain fate.
