Μια γειτονιά επιστημονικής φαντασίας στην Ολλανδία (βίντεο-φωτό)!

Μια παράξενη γειτονιά στην Ολανδία μoιάζει σαν κοινότητα από ταινία επιστημονικής φαντασίας.

Η γειτονιά έχει 50 σφαιρικά σπίτια και την σχεδίασε ο Ολλανδός καλλιτέχνης και γλύπτης Dries Kreijkamp, δίνοντάς της το όνομα: Bolwoningen («σπίτια μπάλες»).

Όλα τα σπίτια είναι σφαιρικά και τοποθετημένα δίπλα σε ένα κανάλι.

Κάθε σπίτι είναι τριόροφο, με τον επάνω όροφο να είναι το σαλόνι μαζί με κουζίνα και άπλετη θέα.

Design in Circles | 5. "The globe-shape is totally self-evident,” said the Dutch artist-turned-architect Dries Kreijkamp. “It’s the most organic and natural shape possible. After all, roundness is everywhere: we live on a globe, we’re born from a globe. The globe combines the biggest possible volume with the smallest possible surface area, so you need minimum material for it. It’s space saving, very ecological and nearly maintenance-free. Need I say more?” Having become fascinated by spheres as an art student in the 1950s and 1960s, Kreijkamp was eager to experiment with circular forms wherever possible. In the 1980s, armed with a Dutch government grant for experimental housing, he designed and built 50 spherical homes that he named bolwoningen, or bulb houses in Maaspoort, a quiet suburban neighbourhood in the city of Den Bosch. Kreijkamp originally envisaged them squatting on the ground – like the bolwoning where he lived in the nearby town of Vlijmen – but was forced to elevate the Maaspoort versions on to stalk-like legs, and to abandon his original plan to build them from lightweight polyester, in favour of tough glass fibre reinforced concrete. Convinced that the bolwoningen in Maaspoort would fuel global demand for his spherical homes, Kreijkamp continued to develop the design by adding solar panels and wind turbines, but, sadly, there were too few takers. #design #architecture #experimentalhousing #bolwoningen #bulbhouses #drieskreijkamp #designincircles
