Komaba Campus II, Tokyo University: Komaba-Todaimae
Komaba-Todaimae / Notable building

Completed in January 2001, the Komaba Campus II buliding of Tokyo University is the work of architect Hiroshi Hara, who was also responsible for the Umeda Sky Building in Osaka and Kyoto Station. The massive building is a few city blocks in length, and houses the facilities of the Institute of Industrial Science and other research institutes.

The length of the building is divided into a number of individual blocks with separate lobby areas. A central atrium-like space runs through most of the length of the building, with overhead bridges linking the two halves.

Although it's a bit off the beaten track for an architecture tour, it's located just a few minutes away from the Japan Folk Crafts Museum.
