MAURO TURIN ARCHITECTES designed the ‘House 4x–’ in Switzerland.
Description from the architects:
This three-dimensional tissue of threadlike elements encloses the air, giving place to some empty spaces. Some empty spaces, which, filled and defined by the playing of light and shadow through the days and the seasons, vary continually, creating an ongoing tension of always changeable richness. Tension that happens in another dimension, in a phenomenological dimension, in a dimension of the individual perception.
The house 4x— resolves three types of relations, with itself, with the forest by its side and with the lake in front of it, by a centrifugal rotation of some horizontal pieces which move vertically so that, while counterbalancing each other, they mutually balance each other.
The horizontal pieces are crossed by others in vertical that support them, without managing to balance them. The balance is reached by multiplying these pieces, in some kind of descending spiral that reaches the ground, so that the following sequence of pieces supports the precedent sequence in an act of four phases.
