  • awesome dign, but somehow, it reminds me of US’s F-117 nighthawk. stealth of course

  • like a space craft just landed

  • it reminds me of a current ABC add on tv where a man unfolds shapes very similar into a form suggesting an abode….how strong are the materials, will it stand the test of time

  • so disturbing to actually live in!
    visually captivating yes!
    practical? i doubt

    its a very common style
    zaha hadid does all that disturbing work too, in a much more refined style!

  • a truly amazing home. well deserved award for these aussie architects,the exceptional trades involved and very lucky owners.

  • The only problem is the bottom … Nice job. Specially the balcony.
