Japan: Under the Underpass

The “dead space” and loss potential of underneath bridge and underpass spaces is a pet peeve of mine in urban design.    It was great to see active building uses observed around Tokyo’s underbridge spaces –   in Ginza, Toyko Station, Ueno Station.

    I most definitely agree. Japan makes great use of underpasses, with many shops and cafes in these areas. I just don’t understand Queensland Rail’s overly risk averse culture.
