Nakagin Capsule Tower – Living in a Long Forgotten Future


We take a look inside the Nakagin Capsule Tower in Shimbashi, Tokyo, Japan, during a night’s stay. Designed by Kisho Kurokawa and built in 1972, the cube-shaped units are meant to be individually detached and replaced as they age, but never were.

The building has since fallen into disrepair and is slated for eventual demolition.
