This is the Tokyo Forum designed by American architect Rafael Vinoly based in New York. I've always wanted to come here and finally I had some free time before the Shinkansen (bullet train) arrived so I took some shots. I managed to get about 20 or so shots before I had to leave. Next time, I'll make it a point to go up to the second floor where from what i hear, the views are spectacular.

The roof structure is said to mimic the bottom of a sea vessel.

I'm an architect. I couldn't resist not photographing this beautiful structure.

Great shot with all that interplay of lines, curves and the shadows on the left. And it has nicer b&w tones than your other one. Bet it'll look great blown up! Could be me but it just looks a very wee bit tilted to the left.

Love this one, what a great structure. Spot on exposure and love the B&W treatment.

Amazing lines. Nice touch having the people in there to give a sense of the vastness

WOW! Fantastic shot. I like the B&W. The perspective is really nice. The people show how big the place is.
