Unusual Architecture: The House Made From 6 Trapezoids

4 Years Ago By Diana Adams

Creativity is all around us, every day. Just look around you, and you’ll see the evidence. Our world and everything in it right now was created from a vision of creativity, and when people say our world is made up of what we want to see, I believe that’s true. One of the most inspiring forms of creativity to me can be seen in unusual architecture. Sometimes unusual architecture is conceived to solve a problem, like this Vertical Forest. After all, when there is isn’t enough ground space to grow a forest in the typical horizontal way, it only makes sense to go up. Other times unusual architecture is built to simply illustrate a concept, like this mind twisting Right Brian and Left Brain Building.

Creative and unusual architecture doesn’t have to take the form of a fancy masterpiece though. Sometimes it can be just a small home with an inspiring view. Just looking at some of those types of houses online can be pure inspiration. Today I’d like to share with you a somewhat bizarrely interesting piece of unusual architecture. This is a “6 trapezoid house,” and all you math and geometry fans will probably like it best.

According to Wikipedia, a trapezoid is “a convex quadrilateral with at least one pair of parallel sides.” Each of the six trapezoids represent a particular area in the house like the living room, kitchen, bedrooms and bathroom. The space between the trapezoids consists mainly of windows and a parking space. It all comes together to create a cozy one-story house. It was built by architect Hiroyuki Shinozaki. He created it for two women who currently live there in Utsunomiya, Japan which is a relatively small town about 80 miles north of Tokyo. You can see more pictures, including images of the interior, here on Spoon & Tamago. I wish I knew what the inspiration was for creating a home from 6 trapezoids.
