SkyTree on cover Japan Architect

On the cover of The Japan Architect: Tokio SkyTree, the world’s tallest broadcasting tower, designed by Nikken Sekei. The base of this 634 meter high tower consists of commercial facilities and offices. The core column, or Shinbashira, is an 8 meter diameter fire egress that is structurally independent from the steel tower, designed to withstand earthquakes. In doing so, a very slender silhouette was achieved. SkyTree forms a new landmark in the Tokyo skyline.
