Sadly most of building projects in Tokyo aren't very impressive.

yes you are right!!! But the main factor I don't like of Tokyo skyscrapers is that they are almost all 200 meters high and the scenario is quite flat!!! Tokyo needs a super high skyscraper!! Like Financial center in Shanghai or the Empire State Building in N.Y.
What you think about????

I agree with you! Mid-town shape is really amazing but the high is too less...I was for 100 meter more!

"tokyo's obsession with 'refined/modified' boxes was pretty aesthetically successful in the beginning, but with all these new proposals and constructions that obsession is getting really TIRED."


On the other hand the density and size of Tokyo is maybe whats most spectacular about the city. Did anyone say urbanism?

Do you think the shape of cube or box of most tokyo buildings is due by the vision of an equalitarian society? or it is simply the japanese vision of aesthetic?

I think they just want to get the maximum floor space within the height limit?

well, maybe regular boxes are more resistant to earthquakes than extravagant shapes.
