AD Classics: Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building / Kenzō Tange

04:00 - 27 September, 2016
AD Classics: Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building / Kenzō Tange, No.1 Building
No.1 Building

The career of Japanese architect Kenzō Tange features a curious anomaly: he received the same commission twice. In 1952, during the early stages of his career, Tange designed an administrative building in Yūrakuchō, Tokyo, for the city's metropolitan government. Over thirty years later, when the government relocated to Shinjuku, Tokyo, he again won the commission to design its administrative building. Completed in 1991, this would be one of his last, and most ambitious, projects. The second incarnation now dominates the city’s skyline, its highly distinctive design guaranteeing it landmark status. Nicknamed Tochō (an abbreviation of its Japanese name Tōkyō-to Chōsha), its architectural references to both tradition and modernity act as a visual metaphor for the eclectic city over which its inhabitants govern.

a+u 2016:05 "Beginning with the House – 65 Architects’ Visions from Early Residential Works" (Special Issue)

This special edition of a+u takes an overview of early works, mostly houses, by 65 prominent architects around the world, including: Álvaro Siza, Richard Rogers, Glenn Murcutt, Valerio Olgiati, Lacaton & Vassal, Caruso St John, Smiljan Radic, ELEMENTAL, and Pascal Flammer. We asked each architect two questions – the visions they had when they designed the house, and how that vision has evolved over time.

a+u 2016:08 "Berlin – Contexts of Architecture and Cityscape"

The August 2016 issue of a+u explores the architecture and cityscape of Berlin. The fascination of this city stems from the way it continually changes to reflect the current age, even while preserving the memory of past glories and tragedies and the complexities of its positive and negative legacies. This issue, with new photos, is devoted to the “now” of the city and its architecture in their contemporary and historical contexts.

The complex includes two high-rise, mixed-use buildings containing a luxury hotel, commercial office space, retail and cultural facilities, and is centered around a park and public area that will visually connect the development to the adjacent Imperial Palace East Gardens.
