ARCHITECT: KENZO TANGE (1990)

This large Tokyo complex, aslo referred to as "Tocho," houses the headquarters of the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
My son and I visited the project as part of an architectural tour of Japan in 1998.
Located in the Shinjuku area of Tokyo, this structure seems to have little of the interest and excitement of some of the architect's other projects.
