Alone in the Death Star

Big Project

I’m sorry I’ve been a few hours late on some of the daily blog posts! I’m working on a huuuuuge personal project, and my time is getting lost in it somewhere… I look up, and thing – OMG I forgot to do the blog post. This has never really happened to me, so, either I am going insane, or something really awesome is coming!

Daily Photo – Alone in the Death Star

I’m sure the architects had fun with this building!

In most ways, it’s a completely inefficient use of space. There is a large atrium with all sorts of strange catwalks and ramps and bridges that go from one useless place to another! But that is also what makes it very cool… almost Escher-like.

This is from the Tokyo International Forum, and if you click on the Tokyo link below, you are sure to see many more photos from this place!

    I was expecting a picture of the Dallas Cowboys’ stadium. Nice shot!

    Very nice shot Trey. Slightly jealous, when I visited all the ramps and walkways were closed off, for what looked like maintenance. I only had access to the floors on the left side. Would have loved to be able to take some photos from this side, but such is life. Its a good reason to revisit the place in the future.

    cool shot Trey – be cool if we could pin this on pinterest! 🙂

  • It looks empty – there must have been a reactor leak on the prison level!

  • Great shot of one of my favorite places Trey. Great work!

  • As I understand it (never having been able to visit Japan), Tokyo is a very crowded city, and one of the ways architects and landscape designers convey “specialness” is by incorporating extravagant wide-open spaces. Parts of Tokyo Disneyland are designed with open space for this reason. Maybe that helps explain this building as well.
