Nakagin Capsule Tower - 中銀カプセルタワービル

The Nakagin Capsule Tower, completed in 1972, is still in use today.  However, it's in pretty bad shape and may be demolished.  I wanted to see it before that happens.  Each of these little concrete boxes is a very small apartment.  It's fascinating as an example of modular architecture.  In theory, each module could be removed, moved and replaced with another.
