Nakagin Capsule Tower, Tokyo Colour Print
Harper and Charlie’s illustration of the 1972, Kisho Kurosawa designed Nakagin Capsule Tower in Shimbashi, Tokyo, Japan. The entire building was built in 30 days from prefabricated capsules and each capsule was designed to be removable.
This building is one of few remaining examples of Japanese ‘metabolist’ architecture. The building still exists but unfortunately is currently in quite a state of disrepair and its future is uncertain.
The distinctive look of Harper and Charlie’s art is inspired by vintage printmaking techniques, such as the use of coarse halftone screens, slipped registrations, colour bleed, scuffs and scratches etc which add to the look and feel of each design. Please note these elements have been applied to the art on purpose and are not printing defects in the final design.
- Our design is printed on premium grade Ilford 180 gsm matte paper with commercial grade pigment inks.
- The total print size as specified in the product listing includes the shown border around the design as part of the finished image. Please note, the width of the border on each design varies with each print size.
