The first U.S. example of architecture against death -- otherwise known as “reversible destiny architecture” -- is now selling in East Hampton for $4 million. And the home has been named one of the country's Top 10 Weird but Wonderful Homes.
According to the website TopTenRealEstateDeals.com, the three-bedroom, two-bath, 3,700-square-foot house was designed by the architectural team of Arakawa and Madeline Gins. The philosophy behind the architecture is to disorient the occupants while at the same time keep them challenged and alert for a long life.
Says Ursula Reimann, the listing agent from Sotheby's International Realty: "This great dwelling is a synthesis of architecture, philosophy, art and science." Built as an extension to a 1964 A-frame house based on the Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture, the "Bioscleave House" comes — thankfully — with directions for use.
