Okay, I know, a 40 minutes video… But seriously, this is truly amazing. The evolution of the thoughts of this guy, Ron Resch… He totally impress me. his way to always go further with his ideas… This is what we call creativity, this is what we can do when we push our brains, and this is also the beginning of computerisation. This 4o minutes truly worth it. Wow. Geometry and patterns enthousiasts will be blown away.

A typical brick building overlooking a green courtyard, expanded with unexpected growing volumes offering wide scenic openings. Sleek details.
Alison Brooks Architects has extended a nineteenth century house in north London by adding two tapered volumes that project into the garden. The first volume wraps around the brick walls at the side and rear of the house to create a small office, while the second volume extends out at the back to increase the size of the first floor living room. “The extensions were designed to draw in light from the sky, embrace the garden, and capture a precise view of the massive walnut tree near the house,” explained architect Alison Brooks. The ends of each block are entirely glazed, while the sides are clad in dark grey Corian panels. “Each trapezoidal plane of the scheme is either fully glazed or fully solid, there are no punched windows,” said Brooks. “Both roof and wall planes are one material. This approach creates an architecture without mass and weight. It is more like the folded surfaces of origami.”
