glass pyramid by yukihide mizuno

japanese architect yukihide mizuno has a bit of an obsession with the pyramid. for a few years now,
he and his firm have been experimenting with pyramid shaped roofs on a variety of japanese homes.
one of their latest is the most impressive of the series because the entire roof is covered in glass.
the walls of the home of pored concrete, but the second floor and the atrium are flooded with light
from the completely open roof. the front façade shows off the unique design in full force by opening
it up to the home’s living area with a full glass wall as well.
