The client had saved 1.5 million yen ( about US $14,000) to buy a Toyota Corolla but decided he would rather have a gallery to present his hobby of ceramic art, so that was the budget.

Mount Fuji Architects
call that a ridiculous sum of money to build a building, yet for that sum you can buy a "mobile room" with air conditioning, navigation and power windows. Why is architecture so expensive? They decided to beat the automobile in value by "holding a thorough investigation into closed payment structure of architectural industry; to quest an object which is most rational and reasonable by treating an architectural structure as a plain object."

Motto of this project was like this: "Make great use of 1.5 million yen, and architecture get ahead of automobile".::xxxx house in Yaizu, Shizuoka via ::noticias arquitectura
