I admit it, I am a relative newbie to Twitter, even though Design Public has been tweeting for quite some time. Who are your favorite design tweeps that I might like to follow? Today I found this cool Mexican house, via styleture via freshome, designed by 7X Taller de Arquitectura.
At first glance, I thought this might be cargotecture, i.e. a house made of shipping containers, because of the shape of the second floor on the right side. I wonder if the forms created by making buildings out of shipping containers is starting to influence the style and form of buildings that contain no containers? Or is it a coincidence? Do you think the style gleaned more inspiration from international style and designers like Rem Koolhaas (I’m thinking Villa Dall’ava) or Corbu (I’m thinking a little Villa Savoye)? Is it a combo? Am I the world’s worst architecture analyst? In any case, I’d love to see an inspiration board for this very interesting modern house. What do you think?
