Fukuoka 2012 Acros
Based and designed on a wind tunnel experiment, the Acros building is designed to reflect the mountains. There is a waterfall and a pond included in the building design. There are 120 varieties of 50,000 plants running up its 14 floors to ensure they accurately reflect the seasonal changes in the mountains that surround Fukuoka. A store called Juliet's Letters is in the building -- must visit!
