Rupert Wingfield-Hayes reports from Tokyo.

Re: Japan's Incredible Shrinking Building

Did these guys ever think about over engineering a solution? Must be prohibitively expensive and looks to take far too long in bringing a building down.

Cool but not as fun as demolition balls and explosives

Re: Japan's Incredible Shrinking Building

So they make buildings like a penis now? When you want them they go up, but when you don't want them they shrink.

Re: Japan's Incredible Shrinking Building

Too expensive.

The only way it would be applied here in the west is if it got cheaper and when a client wanted to erect a building in a place which needs redevelopment.
