Nakagin Capsule Tower

by Kisho Kurakawa, Japan, 1972.

The Nakagin Capsule Tower was designed to be the perfect machine for bachelor living.  Each 12x6x6 capsule, with porthole window at one end, was completely modular and adaptable to the needs of its particular inhabitant.  The full potential of the project was never realised and now exists as a testament to the modernist desire for pod living.
