1017. Reader's Digest, Tokyo, Japan
















Dear Koichi,

"Some of the most important factors in modern architecture
are flexibility, mobility, adaptations to varied uses; and I
would add that all these elements are capable of creating
an atmosphere of serenity and calm, life, and joy"
(Antonin Raymond)

Although the recipient of the third Annual Award offered by
the Architectural Institute of Japan, the Reader's Digest
Tokyo headquarters office building was wistfully demolished
in 1963.

Gratefully,
R
