bold shafts

This building which looks like a robust fort is designed by Kenzo Tange ( related page is here ) for Yamanashi local media company about 50 years before. It is still active and one of the landmark in front of Koufu station now.


Bold shafts are the key element of the building which allow its floors flexible and expandable to configurate. This is one of the strong charactor of Metabolism movement of the era. ( related page is here )


Some details tell the possibility for the future expansion.


The wooden mock-up was proudly shown at the entrance space of the building. It doesn't look the building is completed, but yes, that's the concept.
