The “Tower House,” built in Tokyo in 1966, and boasting a mere twenty square meters at its base, came to symbolize an urban lifestyle born of a symbiotic union with the metropolis. In the gentle swoon of the ever spiraling camera work, Karl­-Heinz Klopf takes us through the visionary concrete structure, while the off­-camera narration describes growing up in this home between Japanese tradition and a society in transition.
