The “origami house”: mathematics, flexibility and sustainability.

The link between mathematics and architecture has always been very strong! From Plato, who saw the universe as a series of geometric figures determined by a mathematical rule, until Niemeyer, famous for the boldness of the forms used in his architectures, the result of a careful study of conics. Even in this project we can notice this tested combination, which merges with the extreme flexibility of the spaces and sustainability of the structure: it is D*Haus, a house able to change its shape according to environmental and astronomical requirements, and to facilitate the energy saving.

The authors of the project D * Haus, the british architects David Grünberg and Ben Daniel Woolfson, have designed a building extremely flexible in which the ability to adapt to different climatic and environmental conditions favors the well-being of people who live there and energy saving: the modular forms reminiscent of the typical folds of paper necessary to carry out work with the ancient technique of origami.

D*Haus is composed of two bedrooms, a living room and a bathroom; this composition gives rise to eight different configurations to ensure an optimal use of seasonal climatic conditions, thanks to a system of tracks that allows to scroll the walls and make them, according to the requirements, internal or external. The basic structure is prefabricated and modular; it consists of four modules of construction, separated to allow the displacement, placed on a square plan.

“The D*Haus is the product of an applied mathematics’ realization. Each house is able to adapt to the evolution of the future patterns of life ” support Grünberg and Woolfson, who will see their prototype exhibited at the prestigious Anise Gallery in London!
