the villa nurbs

Imagine living in a house with breathable skin that adjusts to light and weather almost as if it was a living organism. Wedged between suburban homes outside of Barcelona, The Villa Nurbs created by architect Enric Ruiz-Geli, is an architectural gem encompassing attributes that–as its creator admits–weren’t possible before technological progress.

In his interview with the NY Times, Ruiz-Geli says, ‘‘The idea of a fluid continuous surface — this idea has been around since Antoni Gaudí. People dreamed of this but could never do it. Digital technology, parametric design — this allows a level of complexity that couldn’t be built before. The skin, structure, climate, technology are all in balance. It allows us to build today the utopia of before.’’
