1964 – Komazawa Olympic Park Control Tower – Yoshinobu Ashihara

This iconic concrete tower designed by architect Yoshinobu Ashihara became the outstanding landmark of Konazawa Olympic Park. Its structure refers to traditional Japanese wood architecture, but is transformed to a modernist shape and construction. What originally was facing concrete is today unfortunately painted white.
