Nishi Shinjuku is a business area created by the city project plan after the war and named "Shinjuku sub-city planning". This exhibition aims to realise a "Nishi-Shinjuku building chronicle, which can be experienced visually and three-dimensionally" through valuable images, which record the construction process of skyscrapers at each step. Following the history of the city, we can find the magnificent works of architects, who challenged skyscrapers in Japan, one of the most seismic countries. Our little contribution to the Exhibition with the research on "Shinjuku Station and its phases of transformation".
