Entitled "Ex of IN House," the video explores the formulation, execution, and daily reality of a home built on a splendor of acreage in Rhinebeck, New York. Likening program to a bunch of bananas, Holl advocates for abstraction in the design process, explaining that with the concept of IN, "all space is sacred." With a soundtrack that seems to combine the plinkiness of Thomas Newman with the urgency of Clint Mansell, it's a bit of a wonder (<a href="https://vimeo.com/199345992" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">click here to view</a>).</p> http://archinect.com/news/article/71073179/free-open-spherical-lollipop-houses Free/open spherical lollipop houses Archinect 2013-04-11T17:07:00-04:00 >2013-04-11T22:39:04-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/650x/by/by601t067irb93nl.jpg" width="650" height="631" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>A UK project called Ekinoid aims to produce free/open plans for spherical houses that perch on poles seven feet off the ground.
