Moebius House a super-sized strip of math wonder
If you've ever wanted to live in a mathematical head-scratcher, the Moebius House is the home for you.
The Moebius House doesn't look or sound real. It's designed to be built on a Korean island in a forest growing on volcanic rock. It's inspired by the unending brain teaser known as a Mobius strip.
Design firm Planning Korea has tackled some creative projects in the past, including designs for a mega-bridge over the Han River and a cocoon-shaped house that looks like it could hide a giant insect inside. It's no wonder those same architects saw a Mobius strip as a good basis for a house.
The two-story Moebius House features tons of windows and a curved exterior shaped like the famous strip. This would be the perfect abode for a mathematician. Currently, details are sketchy on whether the structure is actually slated for construction.
Perhaps this unusual building will inspire a movement of houses based on mathematical anomalies and oddities. I would love to see some Fibonacci sequence flats or Poincare conjecture condos. I challenge architects to turn Fermat's Last Theorom into a mobile home design. That would make a Mobius-based house look pretty easy by comparison.
