Shiny House

In LA, we understand the appeal of metal architecture. We have Frank Gehry here after all. But it's good to know that other architects are fighting the good fight. Next time you're in Tokyo's Omotesando neighborhood, make a point of wandering past this building. It's called the Fujitsubo (or 'barnacle').

A vision of loveliness in beaten sheet copper, it was designed and created by Yoshihiro Hirotani and Yusaku Ishida of Archivision.

The barnacle is located at 4-13-8 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, and currently houses a beauty salon. RM
