Shinkenchiku January 2022 Special Issue

Feature: The Okura Tokyo LEGACY

Edited by Shinkenchiku-sha


Full Description

This special issue of Shinkenchiku is focused on The Okura Tokyo, which was reconstructed and newly opened in September 2019. Completed in 1962, the original Hotel Okura Main Building fostered over the years its historical and urban presence and values, which The Okura Tokyo inherited as “legacies” and further developed so that they would adapt to the present era.

The magazine introduces those legacies inherited by The Okura Tokyo from a wide range of perspectives such as historic preservation, urban planning, and engineering. We hope you enjoy reading about a redevelopment project that is rooted in and grows with the community and shapes the city.

Text in English and Japanese.
