Belly of the Whale – Yurakucho Forum

MJG Architecture, Japan 5 Comments

I’ve wanted to shoot the interior of the Yurakucho International Forum for some time, but only now got round to doing it- pushed ahead by a meeting with international jet-setter and club photographer Joshua Dearing. We did a photowalk around the structure, then through Ginza, finishing up in the big Starbucks where we talked plenty about extending life and Apple’s next product release.

Inside a giant zeppelin.

Like the skeleton hull of a giant ship is sailing overhead.

Tail-bone.

Temple.

Catnapping on the third floor.

The Forum is a spectacular building, seemingly built completely for style. As far as I can see it has no other function than to awe and impress the visitors who come to the conference center that it’s attached to.

Josh, complete with 3-D glasses and camera hand-strap he has built in China for him.
