Fuji TV building, (FCG ビル) by K.Tange Architects


IMGP0009It is a very famous building, located in Odaiba flamboyantly signed by Kenzo Tange back in 1993, the japanese wiki voice says so 8completed in 1997.

It is the main site for a TV Channel called Fuii TV. At the moment they`re advertising a lot the manga called One Piece. ,Years ago in Italy I sometimes watched it ,  it was memorable.

There is a sliding scale with a nice structural cover.

IMGP0052Also from the observatory, renamed Hachitama 、maybe the most beatiful skyline of Tokyo can be seen.

IMGP0022or if you prefer apanoramic view.

IMGP0021Since there are plenty of book about Tange, I add only that it was a windy day, and at the 7th floor my child did enjoy alot himself running, fighting against the strenght of the wind.

Here below some more images.
