Tokyo’s Famous Capsule Tower May Not Be Doomed - CityLab

In the densely packed Tokyo neighborhood of Shinbashi, one building stands out from all the others: the 13-story Nakagin Capsule Tower, completed in 1972. Its two stacks of small metal capsules, each with a signature round window, look more like a collection of washing machines than an apartment complex.

I can see that time has passed on this concept but I love that it was an idea brought to fruition.
