Do you know those origamis? Yes, those pieces of paper that some people use to create amazing shapes. This is what I remember when looking at the Klein Bottle House, a holyday house located near Melbourne, Australia. A project by McBride Charles Ryan Architects that is a very inpiring building which show us how we can use experimental geometry keeping the home functionality.
The technology was an important part of the project. To help develop the surfaces, topological mathematicians has played with CAD, this way they could bring the possibility to work with complex shapes and how to communicate them. Also the project had a concept with some levels connected by a wonderful stair and a central courtyard, revealing the house around it!
Besides this great look and feel, Klein Bottle House have won the award for World's Best Home at this year's World Architecture Festival award. So check it out this house trough the John Gollings's pictures!
