Greenlight for the capsules.





I rarely read books, just prefer to browse some "very catchy" artworks from the cybersphere.
Amazing designers from other countries, in terms of architectural, industrial designs, construction field, engineering, fashion designs and so much more that we can actually see into it.

Nakagin Capsule Tower in Japan,
The building has already 100% completed and the duration for the construction is approximately 2 years between 1970-1972. It has thirteen floors which house prefabricated modules or capsules and self-contained. The building is the first model capsule architecture built for the actual use.
The use of asbestos has effected the building and were to be demolished because of it is not an earthquake proof building in Japan but I'm still in love with the interesting conception of the building. Very impressive isn't it?
