Triangle Houses

They seem incredibly inefficient in terms of space, but they look so damn cool that I don't care. Triangle houses - AKA A-frame houses - have always been around, but it wasn't until the 1950s, alongside the mid-century modern movement, that they became fashionable. They were small and therefore cheap, so many architects created cabin- or cottage-sized A-frame vacation homes. After a while, full-sized triangle houses were being built across the US. And I kind of want one.

Check out the gallery below!

    I'm convinced that schools are meant to destroy your soul so you become a complacent 8AM to 6PM worker. It doesn't help that so many of them have no character to them.

    French architecture firm a/LTA created this pretty & cool basketball hoop. Drawing inspiration from trees, there are hoops on different level "branches". I don't think this   hoop is practical for a game, but it's cool for practicing free throws.
