Truss Wall House, Tokyo, Japan
Date: 1992 - 1993
Cited in many architectural publications of 20th Century architecture, the Truss Wall House was designed and built 15 -20 years in advance of the current fashion of curved form buildings. This project began as a technical commission from the owner of the Truss Wall system; a method of compound curve concrete construction. It had been in use for many years in a figurative form, made to look like dragons, curtains and the like. The architects reinvented the system by creating an abstract free and flowing form and to make the most out of its confined site.
