If you’re sick of the tyranny of a straight, flat wall and boxy, non-organic housing shapes – perhaps the circular home is for you?
Circles are said to represent eternity, timelessness, and totality – and they happen to appear in these homes that have actually been built. Here are several excellent round house specimens from around the world.
The wonderful Tree in the House in Almany, Kazakhstan, is one example, aiming to allow 360 degree views of the forest while hanging out on a cylindrical staircase, surrounding a fir tree. Sadly, we’re still waiting for it to get off the ground.
