Check out the Next Generation House by Sou Fujimoto Architects. It’s like a house built with Jenga blocks. The NGH is a small weekend house that overlooks the River Kuma in Kumakura, Japan. It’s approximately a 13’x13’x13′ cube, which makes it smaller than our apartment here in NYC, but way more functional due to the ramshackle space that is formed by the cedar logs, creating spaces for seating, sleeping, eating, storage, etc. I appreciate the simplicity of the idea and the rigor with which they carried it out.
