A new facility to be used as a base for study and cultural output for Mt. Fuji, recently registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The main gallery is clad in timber latticework. At night, light softly washes the gallery and the shape of Mt. Fuji is reflected in a pool of water with light seeming to shine from the mountain top.
