The distant architectural designs of today are worlds outside the box-shaped buildings of the past. This is especially true for residential homes as architects push the boundaries of their imaginations and design tolerances to create some interesting buildings.
From roller coaster-shaped housing projects with a facade that resembles a South American waterfall more than the front of a building, to single-family homes with the upper floor rising in the opposite direction than the lower floor, today’s architects are designing interesting architecture.
Not surprisingly, the birthplace of these futuristic designs began as an idea in the architect’s mind. With the help of design software that uses layers and transparencies, the architect can make his dream come true.
Now it is no longer safe to tell an architect that building a structure that looks like a half overturned cruise ship is impossible because with all the design tools at his disposal and advances in building construction, the limits of today’s architect are his Imagination.
