The Japanese architect Ryue Nishizawa designed this “Garden & House” in Tokyo on a very small lot of just 8 x 4 m. It doesn’t really have a facade or walls: vases, planters, concrete benches, plexiglass railings, full-height windows and curtains form the boundary between inside and outside. I’m baffled.

I’m pretty sure that his is the weirdest house I’ve ever posted. It was designed by Sou Fujimoto Architects and is located in Tokyo. Just go ahead and watch the video … I just can’t get my head around its structure.
I’m a fan of concrete, the s house in Fukuoka, Japan, just looks awesome. It was designed by stad / Shimokawa Toru. Please note the small windows facing the house next door in the third photo.

The series Broken Houses by Ofra Lapid, is based on photographs of abandoned structures neglected by man and destroyed by the weather. The photographs are found on the internet and used to create small scale models. Afterward the models are photographed again, omitted from their background and placed in gray.
