Huge Tokyo Mansion by Paramodel
This design is a homage to self-built, self-renovated architecture, like the Sawada mansion complex in Kouchi prefecture, the now-demolished Gunkan apartment block in Osaka, and the Kowloon Walled City in China. Tokyo's distinctive characteristic lies in the fact that this huge city is made out of dense arrangements of small houses and buildings. We wanted to create a huge "Tokyo" out of these little bits and pieces of appartement layouts.
