Nakagin Capsule Tower

1I’ve walked in front of the Nakagin Capsule Tower a few times, but never realized until today that it was actually composed of seperate capsule units, and that the interior features such a cool retro-futuristic look.

I found the link at the recently launched and very interesting discussion site. I’ll let one of its creator (and Tokyo blogger) Adam Greenfield describe it:

We want the site to serve as a staging area for developing ideas about how best to live in this chaotic century – a kind of dev server to germinate and test concepts before pushing them live in the “real world,” wherever that is. I imagine it as a space that combines some of the best features of toolstrewn workshop and Viennese coffeehouse. The good doctor calls it “open-source futurism.”
