VILLA NURBS (by fredericamat)

A project by Enric Ruiz Geli, the Spanish architect who gave the lecture at last night’s launch.

'villa nurbs' is a private residence developed by spanish architect enric ruiz geli in collaboration with artist frederic amat and ceramist toni cumella. the space age designed family house is located in empuriabrava (costa brava), spain and consists of wavelike ceramic plates which are used against solar radiation. the plates for the north wall of this building were produced using digitally cut moulds. when the house is seen from above it looks like the eyes of an insect.

What makes this truly fascinating is the neighborhood that surrounds the structure: boring suburban bullshit … and then POW!

This is not your daddy’s architecture ;-)
