Climbing Wall in Tokyo Fitness Club

http://freshome.com/2010/11/18/unworldly-fitness-climbing-wall-with-odd-challenges-in-tokyo/

This indoor climbing wall is in the Illoiha Omotesando fitness club in Tokyo. Designer Nendodeveloped a design that uses the mismatch between a rugged outdoor sport and Tokyo’s fashion district to its advantage.” He hopes that his “uniquely Omotesando-style climbing wall inspires newcomers to try out the sport, and starts a new wave in fitness with style.”

I’m a big fan of indoor climbing walls in general. After watching the movie Richie Riche as a kid, I liked to imagine how I would create my own dream mansion. I wanted to position a climbing wall near a balcony (similar to Nendo’s design) so you would have a choice to either use the stairs or take to the wall. Climbing is a great exercise and a lot of fun.
