koh gen do, beauty salon by an unidentified architect, help me to track it!

IMGP0706This building was standing above his neighbours by its design and in particular for a light, but rather significant choice.

See those red horizontal semi trasparent cut in the windows? They were beautiful. I love them and I loved them more as on the way to the Italian Embassy I was reading the Japan News by the Yomiuri Shimbun, commenting on the inadequate hue of a bridge in Tokyo. It seems that the japanese average man expects the city to be all grey and any other colours would annoying him. This is quite a sickness. The paper was reporting a sort of petition to change the color of a bridge between the cities of Taito and …since it is Red. Wow, such an insult! The paper was reporting even the hisotorical reason of such a disrespectful choice for an average tokyo`s citizen.


SO enjoy this palace.



HEre their official website.

Here an interesting link to a special issue by JABS dedicated to the situation of graduate education in Japan.
