I always regard cities in Japan as the cities of the future. Dense, sprawls that seem to work like clockwork. Some really fanstastic video's and pictures on this thread. The buidling with the off-ramp going through it, and the buidling that acts like a junction, incrediable. Japan is a country i would really love to visit one day.

I remember seeing that on TV. Quite a neat little story behind the construction. Original plans called for the ramp to pass by one side of the building (on which construction had just started), but it turned out there was no room. Both parties wanted that little spot of land for their respective projects. Eventually, they came up with the creative solution you see today.

The expressway is actually not structurally connected with the building. The building has an open space of 3 stories where the expressways runs through. A lot of insulation is used to damp traffic noise and vibrations.

It's actually an interchange (Japanese: JCT) between two expressways; the Route 3 (Shibuya Route) of the Shuto Expressway and the Central Circular (C2) which runs through the 11 kilometer long Yamate Tunnel.

The elevated roads in Shanghai may match it, though they are not as sophisticated as the Japanese urban expressways. Other Chinese cities don't have something like that.
