Starbucks Japan

One of the most fascinating new design concept I've seen so far, is the Starbucks Coffee in Fukuoka. Its location determined by the unusual approach of design, as the street on which it stands leads to a shrine dedicated to a Japanese deity.

With the most rudimentary building materials and designed by architect Kengo Kuma, the structure uses hundreds of interlocking wooden blocks giving the impression that the Starbucks was nested in a tree. While the space is beautiful, the design also functions as a roof support and can be dismantled and reassembled somewhere else, adding a sustainable facet to the project. I love it!
