Claustrophobics need not apply…

…fascinating (and very short) article with intriguing photographs of Japan’s Nakagin Capsule Tower, an example of the “Metabolism” movement in Japanese architecture.  Never heard of it before, but it obviously involves some seriously small rooms for people to live in.

Still, I find the look of the rooms, tiny though they are, intriguing.  Too bad that the tower appears to have so many problems (leaks, asbestos) and will probably in time have to be torn down as the costs to rehab the place are very high.

So, see it while you can!
