There is no snow around the Hoto Fudo noodle restaurant near Mount Fuji in Japan, but that doesn’t mean it can’t look like an igloo.

According to the designers, Japanese studio Takeshi Hosaka Architects, the igloo-shaped Hoto Fudo noodle restaurant is made from soft geometry. The curved, reinforced concrete shell with openings allows for air circulation into the building and also ensures that rain falls at the edges of the interior.
