Unique Architecture: The "Bubbletecture H" Building

Designed by Japanese architect Endo Shuhei, the 'Bubbletecture H' building is anything but normal... This environmental education center was literally designed around the curves of the land in which the form visually blends with the surrounding environment. It is also constructed with locally-sourced Japanese cypress trees... 

The bubble's exterior is shielded with a 1.2mm layer of steel that acquires a thin layer of rust-red coloring as it ages, and up top it features a partial green roof made with local moss. Like Shuhei’s other projects, Bubbletecture H was designed to minimize its environmental impact, reducing the amount of native vegetation loss in construction and sustaining and supporting the life in its vicinity.
