Vertical Glass House - Atelier FCJZ

In a radical rotation of modernist orthodoxy, this rectilinear house moves transparency to the horizontal planes, enclosing the structure from the outside yet opening a vertical view from the base to the sky. The idea is so simple it is hard to imagine it has not been tried before yet the reality of occupying such a space would be genuinely confronting. In the same way that artists such as James Turrell and Richard Serra have eschewed the occularcentric preoccupation with perpetual horizontal views for the meditative and isolating privacy of a private sky, this house focuses the eye and the spirit inward and upward. A perfect scenario for temporary residence and thought.
