Tokyo on a greyish day

Asahi Beer Hall, Tokyo, Japan

Designed by architect Phillippe Starck and completed in 1989, the building is sheathed in black granite puntuated by portaholes representing bubbles rising in a mug of beer. The controversial Flame d’Or (golden flame) on the roof is, well, open to interpretation. Weighing 300 tons and built by a subcontractor who usually builds submarines, the distinctive sculpture has been likened to foam being blown off a frosty mug of draft, the fiery spirit of Asahi’s employees and… a giant turd.

Olá Tsilla,
Glad to see again after some time.
An interesting postcard supported by a very good and informative Note.
A great pleasure to see this piece.

Hello Tsilla

I left Japan in 1984. Would have liked to see this. Japan always has a place in my heart. Wonderful people. Too bad for the overcast sky. Good info on the building.
