Nakagin Capsule Tower has historical significance in terms of architecture and practical significance in society. It once became synonymous with “future architecture” in the context of the times due to its “advanced concept”, and ended hastily in the “vast and desolate”. Perhaps the moment it turns into ruins is a good interpretation of the “entire life cycle of architecture”, but we hope that it can deduce the “theory of evolution”.

Just as we firmly believe that “memories is the continuation of life”, we believe that the spatial reorganization of capsules can awaken memories.

We map the hierarchical relationship of “cell-tissue-organ-system” in biology to the redrawing of Nakagin Capsule Tower, hoping to achieve recyclable and sustainable results by increasing abundance and sound maintenance facilities, and thenNakagin Capsule Tower will be Nirvana.
