A Japanese house and restaurant are contained within a mud-covered building by architect Junya Ishigami, which was crafted by pouring concrete into holes in the ground.
Located in the city of Ube, Yamaguchi Prefecture, the unusual below-ground building has sparked debate amongst commenters.
“The strength of the novelty nullifies the concrete crime”, wrote one.
