Marco Cerda August 21, 2013 at 8:19 am Interesting project! I looked into a piece pertaining to a concrete house as well and found that the use of the cement was so simple, yet aesthetically pleasing, that I’m surprised we don’t see it more commonly. Lindsey Walters August 21, 2013 at 8:44 am Looks like an interesting idea, I don’t think I would like to live in a space like that! ithapa August 21, 2013 at 12:05 pm While the idea behind this is out of the box no pun intended, I feel like there are a lot of small things that make this design undesirable. Such as the heating bill, maintaining the concrete for cracks. setarehbarimani August 22, 2013 at 2:02 am it’s funny i wanna get in there somehow. It takes all the attention because of the small entrance and big concrete wall. pedrammesbah August 26, 2013 at 7:15 am Tadao Ando is one of my all time favorite architects. Personally I love the Contrast between the building and it’s surrounding environment, beside the level of craftsmanship is amazing. Pingbacks list Submit a comment...
