Harumi Passenger Terminal , 1991 – (晴海客船ターミナル) by Minoru Takeyama (竹山実)- on a Island in the Tokyo bay -from Toyosu to Odaiba


from Toyosu, taking the boat to Odaiba. I thought that was an incinerator plant but is not, it is actually a passenger terminal. Here a beautiful picture. The architect is an international from a founder generation (born in 1934, here the wikipedia voice,) and here it is his official website. I am surprised my blog meets him for the very first time only today after two years of posting. He is or he was a University teacher both in Japan (Musashino Art University) and in U.S.A. (illinois) and he is partof the AIA (American Institute Association).

He projected some iconic places here in Tokyo, like Shibuya 109 – I never been inside though! –

After it goes under a bridge, named Rainbow bridge but I am not sure about it
