Aoyama Slender Building

Posted in Places by tokyobling on January 5, 2011

I’m not a big fan of most modern architecture, but there are few cities in the world where it fits better than in Tokyo! Most of the city was fire bombed to oblivion during the war so there isn’t much tradition to look back to when it comes to putting up new buildings or even whole new neighborhoods. This is one of my favorite, splendidly curved sky scrapers in Aoyama, just between Omotesando and Shibuya in downtown Tokyo. There’s a few good places to eat inside, as well as nice terrace offering some great views (I still haven’t posted this one…). This building is called the Ao Building (AOビル). Enjoy!

    Fantastic looking building. I feel like it’s going to move or fold and take on a new shape any minute. Hehe.

    I remember that building! I like its original shape!
    I took pics at night when it was illuminated. It was beautiful :)

      Yes, I have to try and catch it again… I feel that there have been too many night shots on this blog lately, trying to get some more day time shots in here! (^-^)
