Series on the Iconic Capsule Tower in Tokyo

S

Fantastic series of photographs taken over a long period documenting Nakagin Capsule Tower which is no longer there. As suggested in the comments, I hope there is a photobook in the works to preserve this one-of-the-kind building. I would buy it! 

Photographer’s Decade Long Series on the Iconic Capsule Tower in Tokyo | PetaPixel:

Photographer Noritaka Minami spent over a decade documenting the iconic Nakagin Capsule Tower in Tokyo on large format cameras before it was demolished last month.

…The Nakagin Capsule Tower was the realization of a radical architectural movement known as Metabolism. Influenced by the works of Karl Marx and biological processes, the Metabolism manifesto hailed a new form of living that included plans for a floating Ocean City that would be free of ties to a particular nation and therefore free from the threat of war.
