Nakagin Capsule Tower
Location: Shimbashi, Tokyo, Japan
Architect: Kisho Kurokawa
Status: To be demolished (disassembly started on 12th April 2022)
Brief History: Nakagin Capsule Tower was a mixed-use residential and office tower; it was an example of Japanese Metabolism- an architectural movement emblematic of Japan's postwar cultural resurgence. The Tower was composed of two interconnected concrete towers, respectively eleven and thirteen floors, which housed 140 self-contained prefabricated capsules. Each capsule measured 2.5 m by 4.0 m and functioned as either a small living or office space. In March 2022 it was announced that the building would be demolished, and despite campaigns attempting to save it- disassembly started in April 2022.

Our concrete sculptures are individually hand cast in solid concrete. This means that each piece will have distinctive markings and minor blemishes due to air bubbles in the concrete. This is a natural part of the material and will mean that no two pieces are ever exactly the same.
