I love glass. I have no skill in its manufacture or design, but I do know what I like. For me, it's always held a sense of mystery, as I know that glass is a liquid and never actually stops moving.
In fact, it is an amorphous solid, that does move, but not in a way that we can visibly see. But, it still does. It's creepy and exciting at the same time.
It's perhaps one of the reasons I have always love the Alice in Wonderland books, as the mirrored glass transported young Alice a second time into Wonderland. But that reason... that's just between you and I.
As far as this house designed by Nakamura, I think it far better to perhaps direct you to an on-line article I found that will confound, confuse and inspire you, because the writer seems to be talking to the reader in a way that only an architect could love.
|Glass brick used in the construct of the Glass House in Hiroshima. Almost 'LEGO-like'.|
Anyhow... please visit Architectural Review for a read on this building. Even if you don't understand all that is being written, you will enjoy the photos of the building.
