Architecture in Tokyo...

I have been inspired to post more lately, and I am going through the shots that I have overlooked in the past and posting them.  Hopefully, someone may find these of interest.

The first is of the Tokyo International Forum in Yūrakuchō. It was designed by by Rafael Vinoly. The building has favorable reviews and has a page on I have always found this building stimulating. To me it feels more like cathedral than a concert hall. The space is grand and modern.

A short walk away is the Peninsular Hotel. I haven't had the chance to take a stroll inside, but the exterior is just as grand with a modern new world feel.
