We explored Tange’s masterpiece in Yogogi during a recent trip to Tokyo.

Researching the two buildings’ history led me to the official books from the 1964 Olympics and their treasure-trove of amazing images from the first Olympiad held in Asia.

The following suite of posts document Japan’s swift rise from the ashes of defeat in 1945. And, on a personal note, Kenzo Tange’s Olympic installations were among those buildings that sparked my curiosity about architecture as a child. I mean, these are amazing structures!
