Jenga House

Perhaps this isn't exactly the right image that comes to mind when you think about Japan, which is also known as the land of earthquakes, but somehow the Jenga House makes it work.

Acclaimed architect Sou Fujimoto (who also designed the Itabu see-through glass box toilet we've featured recently) designed this 2008 Final Wooden House AKA the Jenga House in Kumakura village, Japan.

You can clearly see where it got its moniker: the Jenga House is built like a giant Jenga tower - with large cedar beams protruding here and there - but there is an actual logic to the way it's made. Find out how over at our new home design blog Homes & Hues: Jenga House.
