Tokyo, Ja­pan (1997)

Fuji Tele­vi­sion building by Kenzo Tange As­so­ci­ates

Lonely Planet (UK) - - Wild Patagonia -

Gaz­ing at this im­prob­a­ble building from the Yurikamome mono­rail is a fab­u­lously fu­tur­is­tic ex­pe­ri­ence. Hog­ging the lime­light in the wa­ter­front Mi­nato district, it’s the HQ of Fuji TV. And it ex­presses the com­pany’s in­no­va­tive na­ture in no un­cer­tain terms, with a lat­tice of ‘sky cor­ri­dors’ hold­ing a 32m ti­ta­nium sil­ver ball in place. Climb to that ball and you’ll see fan­tas­tic views of Tokyo to one side and Mount Fuji to the other. Bizarre and beau­ti­ful. fu­
