Villa NURBS by Ruiz Geli

Villa NURBS is a private residence developed by spanish architect Enric Ruiz Geli in collaboration with artist Frederic Amat and ceramist Toni Cumella. The house has been designed entirely using NURB modelling software. Using ETFE cushions for skylights, ceramic cladding for direct heat transfer, the construct is pushing the boundaries of the way architecture is conceived, from the design process to the materials used. Granted, the project is over budget and over schedule, but such is the price for the avant-garde!
