ONLINE nakagin capsule tower tour
Many ways of preserving the Nakagin Capsule Tower were attempted, however, the project was severely affected by the pandemic that spread across the world. Unfortunately, demolition work started on 12 April 2022.
What makes the Nakagin Capsule Tower different from other valuable cultural assets that are being demolished is that even if the building itself were to disappear from this location, it could be metabolized and its architectural concept would be passed on to future generations.
During the tour, the current status of the demolition and how the project will proceed will be presented through dialogue. There will also be a live broadcast from the site, which can only be seen at this very moment.
It is obviously heartbreaking that this masterpiece will no longer exist in Tokyo, but the tour will support Capsule Tower as it takes the next step forward in a positive direction.
This tour is supported by Nakagin Capsule Tower Preservation and Restoration Project

I really enjoyed the visit and the material they provided us with. The photos were absolutely amazing and very well-concocted. The live part was a very nice surprise and gave me an exciting taste of a “real” visit. The extra-time discussion was also lively and pleasant. I really appreciated it!
Thank you for bringing this piece of Japan to Italy! Hope to meet you in person and again on the web.
The presentation was clear and straight to the point, balancing specific knowledge with contextual information and accessible for both specialists and non-specialized audiences.
It would be lovely to have a real visit. Hope this pandemic fades away soon and I can find my way to Tokyo, which I would love to.
