The Transmutation of the Nakagin Capsule Tower

From Emblematic Futuristic Vision to Digitalized Relic

The story of a structure like Nakagin Capsule Tower is inherently dual: it begins with the pristine vision of its creator, and concludes in its lived, worn-out reality. Both stages鈥 the ideal and the aged鈥攁re valuable in understanding our architectural legacy.

The Tower鈥檚 inception represents an architectural revolution, emblematic of the Metabolism movement鈥檚 vision for organic urban evolution. Its aged state, however, offers a narrative of the building’s struggle against time and societal change.

Digital archiving, as used by Gluon, captures these dual realities, fostering richer dialogue around architecture. The story of the Tower鈥攆rom future symbol to relic, and now digital monument鈥攗nderscores the value of preserving and learning from every phase of our architectural history.

Join us as we trace the Nakagin Capsule Tower’s path from architectural innovation to a digital footprint.
