Tsukuba City, Japan Akira Takaue, Your Shot
Your Shot contributor Akira Takaue was after a cityscape in Tsukuba when he came across this building in what he calls an uncommon suburban town. Located about 37 miles from Tokyo, it’s known as Science City for its various national research facilities and structurally challenging architectural features. “I found this [building] with a beautiful exterior and regularly placed windows standing beside a crosswalk under the soft sunlight,” Takaue says. “I aimed to capture only this wall combined with the pedestrian signal in a perfect flat-plane image without any optical distortions.”
