在那个时期实施的理论是经济的，而且添加小的组件比创建几个独立的建筑更容易。由于相同的原因，代谢物建筑风格被实施的城市与世界其他城市相比更具凝聚力。这一时期日本另一个伟大的建筑是Kenzo Tange (Pernice, 2004)。Kenzo Tange的设计也有助于新陈代谢运动。他的计划非常有效，影响深远，促进了新陈代谢。他的建筑灵感来自西方，他的许多作品都包含了西方建筑的元素。他在这段时期的工作包括东京湾计划。这是一个巨大的结构，由一个非常大的框架组成，由许多可移动的和较小的部分组成。这又一次受到西方的启发，建筑与高速公路相连分离。整个东京湾建筑的设计灵感来自于西方建筑。按照这样的计划所要修建的道路，其设计方式就好像它们是动脉或静脉一样。这种建筑的灵感来自西方，因为这些道路以前只有西方的建筑形式。
The names of the city were also done in such a manner that were inspired from western thought in some or the other manner. The city names were dependent on the basis of the machine. The metabolism architecture was practiced during those times. The metabolist architecture consisted of the designed which were generally, movable, flexible and were built out of the cells which were similar to that of the living organism. The plan also allowed for enabling of the dynamic growth and was also much responsive to the inhabitants in spite of trying to have an overarching construction which the inhabitants actually wanted to implement.
Another major thought which was popular during the Metaboist age was to do the significant rebirth from the physical devastation which was done during the times of World War 2. The architects during these times believed that the Metabolists were interested more in the culture and tradition of Japan but along with the same, they were much more interesting in combining the same with some of the recent ideas related to the technology.
The theories which were implemented during these times were economical as well as it was easier to add small components rather than to create several individual buildings. Because of the same, the urban cities where Metabolist architectural styles were implemented were much more cohesive in comparison to other cities of the world. Another great architecture in Japan during this period was Kenzo Tange (Pernice, 2004). The designs of Kenzo Tange were also an aid to the metabolist movement. His plans were so effective and impactful that they gave boon to metabolism. His architecture was inspired from that of West and many of his works includes the elements from western architecture. An example of his work during this period includes the Tokyo’s Bay Plan. This was a mega structure which consisted of a very large framework consisting of a number of movable and smaller parts. This was again inspired from the West and the buildings were attached and detached from the super highways. The design of the entire structure build over Tokyo Bay was inspired from the Western architecture. The roads which were planned to be created under such a plan were designed in such a manner as if they appeared as the arteries or veins. This kind of construction was inspired from west as these roads were previously available only in the western architectural forms.
Another famous architecture which consists of western influences was the Marine city. This structure had been built after the conference held in Tokyo. The structure of the interior of the building had been setup in such a manner that it was a permanent and an open living space which had been surrounded by the spaces which could be easily replaced. In addition to this, the Marine City features a large number of cylindrical towers which also permits a large number of circular units which were joined and plugged. Some of these towers had been placed in such a manner that they appeared as the circular disks which floated over water. This was another plan which was influenced from the western architecture (Schalk, 2004).
