A great building for Tokyo that captures the essence of the city -- exotic and futuristic. The Fuji TV head office (headquarters) isn't some towering skyscraper; it is the correct scale for Tokyo. But it does glitter and shimmer like an apparition from the future. Its shiny squarish skeleton complements the nearby cranes of the Port of Tokyo, while its Sphere Observation Deck appears to hover above the gantries like a space ship leaving a space port. Though there are empty spaces in the building's frame, much of the grid is an illusion created by recessed banks of windows flanked by textured columns.

  I mean....he tries....give him that. At least he isn't building sheds for people. He knows what to do and does it. At least he doesnt make garages! HE DOES STUFF!

  A horrible building. The structure looks like a giant children's toy in which someone dropped a football. Tange should have given up architecture in the 1960's when he was at his peak. It is difficult to imagine that this architect designed the Olympic stadium in Shibuya and the Saint Mary Cathedral.
