Mt. Fuji Heritage Center Mirrors the Mountain’s Shape

As the most famous and recognized parts of Japan, Mt. Fuji’s importance cannot be overstated. So the building that commemorates, educates, and inspires people about Mt. Fuji must be well executed. Enter the new Mt. Fuji World Heritage Center, designed by star architect Shigeru Ban. With panoramic views of the mountain, the center offers interactive history and information, plus a nearly 200 meter spiral slope that mimics climbing the mountain itself.  Via DesignBoom:
