This crazy facade (above) is part of the National Art Gallery, designed by Kisho Kurukawa in 2005. He founded the avant-garde metabolism movement in the 1960’s, which was all about the pursuit of  recyclable architecture- Nakagin Capsule Tower is one of his most famous buildings, which evoked the idea of impermanence (removeable, interchangeable and adaptable buildings). Below is an internal view of the Mori Tower.
