Nakamura’s Optical Glass House is composed of roughly 6000 glass blocks strung together by stainless steel. Soundproof the façade cancel out external noise while allowing light and air to pass through and revealing only a mosaic of the lush garden inside.
Everybodys favorite NYC firm at the moment, SHoP. Facade of the Porter House, New York. I have a love/hate relationship with SHoP (mostly love). Im usually awed by the facades. Will always hate the Barclays, however.
