st mary’s in tokyo



St. Mary’s Cathedral in Tokyo originally built in 1899 was devastated in a Second World War air raid. Rebuilt in the early 1960s, architect Kenzo Tange created a soaring bell tower flanked by two wings of curving steel-clad concrete. The cathedral’s nave, with its 60-foot-high walls, is mostly illuminated by natural light. Photos: Anthony Cotsifas | via NYT
