Ryue Nishizawa Vs. Bakusho Mondai

My friend Momo — she directed all the segments of Tokyo Eye that I appeared in — has completed work on a show for NHK that will feature architect Ryue Nishizawa (of SANAA) discussing various topics with comedians Bakusho Mondai. The show will air this Tuesday (January 27) at 23:00.

From the screen grabs found on this page, it looks like they’ll be visiting some of Nishizawa’s works. Above, I believe they are standing in front of the Moriyama House, which I got to cover in one of those Tokyo Eye segments.

Goemon Trailer

Kazuaki Kiriya’s follow-up to the visually-stunning Casshern is Goemon, and from the trailer (above), it looks like we can expect another healthy dose of celluloid eye-candy. Via Imprint Talk, which includes more details on the film.

Update (16/12/11): The video is no longer available.
