hemeroscopium house

hemeroscopium house

although it took antón garcía-abril ~365 days to engineer the hemeroscopium house, it took but 7 days to build.  ‘thanks to a total prefabrication of the different elements and a perfectly coordinated rhythm of assembly’ reveals archinect.com [le sigh]

the structure is an incredible feat in engineering – and i am obviously particularly drawn to the hovering swimming pool [see it there, jutting out?] which, according to tropolism, is constructed of material ‘typically used for highway or parking superstructures: a giant precast beam’.  like woah. click on the photo for more pictures + the supposed meaning of hemeroscopium.  spaniards are brilliant.

let’s move to madrid, k?
