I say: pretty cool!

And it gets even cooler if you know the story behind this building - the Nakagin Capsule Tower (Kisho Kurokawa, 1972), which was created to house traveling businessmen, was the first capsule architecture design. It's quite a prototype for sustainable and recyclable architecture, as each module apparently can be plugged into the central core and be replaced or exchanged when necessary. How cool is that?!
