Fuji Pavilion Bank



The pavilions in Osaka's Expo '70 were toyishly futuristic enough without being turned into actual toys.

Here's a little plastic bank in the shape of Fuji Bank's pavilion, which was made from sixteen 4m x 72m pneumatic tubes, lashed together with 50cm-wide webbing, designed by Yutaka Murata and engineered by Mamoru Kawaguchi.
