This House Is An Exhibitionist's Wet Dream

It's hard to believe that this house in Japan is real, but it is. Not just a project, but a home. Designed by Sou Fujimoto Architects, its metal structure and the division of space defy any convention or logic.

In other words: I don't know what the heck is going on here. And yet, I feel incapable of resisting its weird charm. It kicks arse. According to the architect, "in one way the house is like a single space, but each room is also a tiny space of its own. The clients said they wanted to live like nomads within the house — they didn't have specific plans for each room. The house looks radical but for the clients it seemed quite natural."

    I get the feeling an exhibitionists wet dream is something I wouldn't want to know about. But that they would want me to know about.

    A house with 100 entry points in you are a robber

    Imagine coming home from the pub and trying to find your way to bed in that place.

    looks like a greenhouse to me (you would be able to grow a lot of privacy plants in that house.

    On a practical side thou, I didn't see a toilet, beds or any storage space.

    I heard there's a council bylaw banning anyone who lives there from throwing stones.

    More like a skin cancers wet dream

    I <3 it!
    Yes it is quite a quirky/odd shape for a home but it is well executed and seems to work well in program and conceptually as well.
    It reminds me of those jungle gyms I used to play as a kid. So it's a fun project too.
    I totally second the posters thoughts though!
