'Block Color' Came across this interesting piece of modern architecture by chance from looking out the window of a train. Immediately got off at the next station and looped right back to grab a shot. Tokyo is full of little surprises like that, which is why I think it's the most exciting city in the world. Well...that is if you find random buildings interesting 😉

【GINZA SONY PARK】 これまで体験したことのない建替計画。ソニービルの建替に伴い、上物を壊し地下1階から地下4階まで、既存の建築を剥がしてリデザインした様な空間が広がる。通常すぐに新しくビルを建て始めるが、この公共空間のような場所を作ることで生じた空気感をオリンピック後から工事が始まる新しいビルに連続して活かすという、新たな問いを生み出してくれる様な時間のデザインを見ることが出来る。 #sony #japanarchitecture #architecture #architect #architects #designarchdaily #architecturelovers #architecturephotography #casa #house #buildings #建築 #建築家 #建築デザイン

I knew investing in snowshoes was a good decision. The snow at this remote waterfall in Akita would have been too deep to trudge through without them.

"In my opinion Taodao Ando's Hyōgo Prefecture Museum of Art, completed in 2002 holds a unique reflection to one of his main influences, Le Corbusier.  Located on the Kobe waterfront, with the Rokko Mounting Range North west of the city. It was funded by the Kobe Reconstruction emergency package after the devastating Earthquake that destroyed most of the city with a terrible lost of life to the city's population. Once again, thinking back to Ando's roots as a young man growing up in a devastated Japan after World War 2 – embracing the safety, the layering of concrete, yet crafting it, softening its extremities.  Which Corbusier also was able to do, but paradoxically, like Corbusier, Ando built for longevity – a humanist power against the elements, despite maybe sounding contradictory to the Zen philosophy of non dualism. It is this defiance against nature – which inspires the creative.  That, if studied, philosophically, with Zen as the cultivation of the mind, it is by its process of overcoming the natural self and the world.  Conjoining the two, to make them one within the self.  I see this in Ando's Hyōgo Prefecture Museum of Art building..." . #architecture #architectualhistory #tadaoando #structure #architectualcritique #building #architects #japan #japanarchitecture #kobe #HyōgoPrefectureMuseumofArt

The wooden plaques you can see hanging at Shinto shrines are called ema. People write their prayers or wishes on them, and the kami (gods) of the shrine are believed to receive them. . Interestingly ema literally means picture-horse because people used to donate horses to shrines, they then used wooden horse images which turned into the ema you see today! . . . #ema #shintoshrine #shintoism #shinto #yushima #japanarchitecture #japantraditional #discovertokyo #tokyotravel #visittokyo #japan_focus #japan_photo_now #japanculture

The house that uses the sky for the luxury of large open spaces R TORSO C @ateliertekuto Commended Prize ed. 2016/2017 "In high density residential districts in Tokyo, the only direction we can turn for the luxury of large open spaces, let alone vast nature, is the “Sky”. To form a strong connection with the sky, the corner of a rectangular building was pruned away at an angle. Cutting away the internal volume, paradoxically creates a sense of spaciousness in the continuous four story space inside.

【ヤマハ銀座ビル】日建設計 ブランドの並ぶ通りの中で工芸品のようなファサードを持つ。金色に見える部分はガラスに挟まれた金箔で、濃淡の違いを作り奥行きを表現しているように見える。この大きなガラス面はテンションをかけたステンレスワイヤーで支えられている。 技術の集積により生まれた周囲との差異が印象を作っていた。 #japanarchitecture #architecture #architect #architects #designarchdaily #architecturelovers #architecturephotography #casa #house #buildings #建築 #建築家 #建築デザイン

This will be probably the last post about Koishikawa gardens, next posts will be more about the urban jungles of Tokyo, which I had a chance to explore during my business trip last Spring. I still can't forget the greenness of Tokyo, I wish one day Yerevan will get that much and even more green areas. 🌳🌱 . . . . #Japan #Tokyo #TokyoStreets #Kyoto #travelphotobyElch #visitjapanjp #写真好きな人と繋がりたい #ファインダー越しの私の世界 #Explorejpn #Kuhachiya #shinjuku #StreetPhotography #exploringjapan #japanstreet #ig_japan #discovertokyo #日本 #japantravel #inspirationcultmag #shibuya #art_of_japan #greens #tokyocameraclub #japan_vacations #東京 #japanarchitecture #japanmemories #thediscoverer #savetheplanet

The stairway to the Hie-Jinja Shrine in Tokyo. A very pleasant place for a few moments a silence, and thanks to the universe.
