When a group of architects and designers at the London-based firm Pritzker Architecture presented a new design for a London home, it was billed as a radical and unusual concept.
But it turns out it was actually the culmination of a decade’s worth of research into the building industry.
The house is a complex of interlinked structures that form a sort of architectural and social interface, with many layers and interconnections that were initially conceptualised in the 1970s, when architects realised that the world of home building was evolving.
For example, the architect James Dyson designed a house in New York City’s Greenwich Village, which featured a series of towers with open spaces, a swimming pool, and even a large playground, all connected by large steel beams that supported the entire structure.
“I wanted to combine what I saw as the strengths of traditional forms and create something that could be built in a very compact way,” Dyson told New Scientist.
“This is a house that looks like a house, but is a huge structure.”
Over the decades, designers have created similar buildings, including the original home of designer Peter Paul Rubens (pictured), whose work is often associated with the French modernist movement.
A house of mirrors and windows was created by British architects, and the famous Pritzkers building in Paris was designed by French architect Claude Monet, and is often called the “House of Mirrors”.
However, this kind of building design has been largely confined to the urban environment and has mostly been built in the US, although there have been some experimental attempts in the UK.
The design for the new Pritzky House in New Yorker has been inspired by a number of previous attempts to design large buildings using similar structures.
For one, the architecture firm’s research into how the building of large structures actually evolved over the past 20 years suggested that the structure was in fact a reaction to a new kind of urban environment.
For instance, the design team used a large space like the Pritzks, the London office of Pritzkels Architectural Group, as a “testbed” for a new urban form called “interlocking” that they hoped would be able to mimic the “interactive, interactive architecture” of contemporary architecture.
“A lot of these interlocking structures were built to support a new social experience,” Pritzkoers architect and vice president of design David Pritzki said.
“The interlocking is the way that people interact.”
This idea of creating a building that mimics the architecture of the contemporary world was also an idea that was inspired by the architecture that the Piltons used for their first home, the $3.9 billion Waldorf Astoria in New Jersey, a sprawling mansion that was designed in the 1950s and 1960s.
It was constructed from interlocking elements like glass, glass panels, and concrete, all with the intention of creating the kind of social interaction that the architect envisioned.
“Pritzker was a pioneer of interlocking architecture,” Piltmans son-in-law, Christopher Pritzkis, said in a statement.
“It was the culmination and culmination of what I have been working on for 30 years.
I am proud of what they created.” “
We started working with this group in the 1980s, and they created some amazing interlocking architectural designs.
I am proud of what they created.”
The Pritzkes did not build the Waldorf.
The family has said that the building’s interlocking design was inspired partly by their daughter’s experience in living in the Waldurfs old house in Jersey.
It’s now been abandoned.
What’s more, the Pritks plan to build the new house in a different part of New York’s Lower East Side, in the former East Village, to preserve the building and its interlocking style.
It remains to be seen whether or not the Pizzas will be able be reacquainted with their old home.
Pritzkus architect and wife, David, is also the co-founder of the architecture studio Bauhaus, which has been working to develop a series, including a new one in the city, called Pritzkie, that will incorporate elements of inter-connected architectural forms.
The architects hope that the new architecture will make the new neighbourhood of the Waldo estate, which they are calling the Waldokys new home, more accessible to people of all walks of life.
