Summary
Architect Kenzo Tange was one of the post-war leaders of the modern movement in Japan. The style of this movement includes structural elements being exposed on the outside of buildings, a lack of exterior design, and the use of construction materials. The Kofu building is emblematic both of the influence of the modern movement, and of the architectural ambitions of the Metabolist Movement which aspired to building mega-structures - freed from the ground (and ruins) vast extensible cities can develop boundlessly. Its construction material, its concrete (Brutalism) and its futuristic communication technologies programme make it a not only a turning point, but also a masterpiece of transition
