Admire An Array of Modern Design + Architecture
Tokyo’s modern design and architecture embraces originality. Odaiba houses many of Tokyo’s ultramodern structures most notably Fuji TV Building, resembling an erector set with its steel geometric design and Tokyo Big Sight, reminiscent of an alien spacecraft ready for departure. Roppongi combines striking architecture and high-end shopping with Mori Tower and Tokyo Midtown. Maman, a giant metal spider created by Louise Bourgeois, welcomes you to the shops at Mori Tower. The nearby Tokyo Midtown’s extensive grounds include metal sculptures jutting out of the earth and the sleek 21_21 Design Sight museum. A central feature of Tokyo’s skyline is the prominent Cocoon Tower, which received the 2008 award for Skyscraper of the Year.
