The Shape-Shifting House


UK designers David Ben Grünberg and Daniel Woolfson have launched The D*Haus Company to develop the concept for a shape-shifting house that morphs to deal with changing times of day, seasons and weather conditions. The project was initially realized as part of Grünberg's graduation project but now it is shaping to become a part of reality. It is Henry Dudeney’s Mathematical formula that serves as the base for the house. It transforms an equilateral triangle into a square, which splits the building into four separate modules. The rooms would fold out in such a way that the interior partitions become exterior walls during warmer seasons, plus the whole building would also be able to rotate to follow the direction of the sun across the day. In theory, the house can be used anywhere in the world irrespective of its climatic conditions.
