St. Mary's Cathedral Tokyo was designed by Kenzo Tange about 50 years before, amazingly almost the same time when his famous Yoyogi Gymnasiums was done. ( related page is here )


This dynamic form is based on the shape of a cross although it can be recognized only from the sky. The exterior looks super modern because of the stainless steel which is totally covered its curved surface. It's interior, on the other hand, is exposed concrete finish which makes stained glass beautifully emphasised.


This detail shot below is a door handle of the entrance. The combination of wood and metal is nice, together with the shape of a cross.


And a tall narrow tower for bells stands next to the church is also modern looking, although its design language is slightly different to the main structure. ( related page is here )


And its detail, possibly a maintenance hatch, is also cool.
