Today’s far-out architectural designs are worlds apart from the box-shaped edifices of the past. This is particularly true for homes as architects stretch the limits of both their imagination and design tolerances to create some interesting buildings.
From rollercoaster-shaped housing projects whose façade looks more like some South American waterfall than the front of a building, to single family dwellings whose upper floor takes off in the opposite direction than its lower floor, today’s architects are devising some interesting architecture.
Not surprisingly, the birthplace of these futuristic designs began as an idea in the architect’s head and then, with the help of design software that employs layers and transparencies, the architect is able to bring his dream to life.
Now, it is no longer safe to tell an architect that building a structure that looks like a half-capsized cruise ship is impossible, for with all of the design tools at his disposal, and the advancements in structural engineering, the limit to today’s architect’s is his imagination.
