Hilarious Shibuya Station

PRESENTED ON SEP 27, 2017
IN TOKYO @ VOL 150

Having invested time and energy into understanding and analyzing the complex spatial structures of Shibuya, Shinjuku and Tokyo stations, Architect Keisuke Tamura decided to express his studies in the form of physical models. The fruits of his labor having been summarized in books and exhibitions looks past the stressful nature of these gigantic train terminals to showcase their brilliance and fascinating appeal.

田村圭介は建築家としての活動のかたわら、渋谷駅の複雑な空間構造とその変遷過程を研究し、それらを模型の形で表現をしてきました。その成果は展覧会にて発表され書籍にまとめられ、対象は東京駅、新宿駅まで及んでいます。プレゼンテーションを聞けば、いつも使っているストレスフルな巨大ターミナル駅がとても面白く見えてくるでしょう。

APPLAUD THIS!
