The Bioscleave House

The Bioscleave House, designed by architect Arakawa and Madeline Gins. The designers’ philosophy is that the only way to fight the inevitability of death is to stay young through daily challenges, both physical and mental. As told to the NY Times, Gins and Arakawa built the house to “make people use their bodies in unexpected ways to maintain equilibrium, and… stimulate their immune systems.” The house features undulating, sand-dune like floors and jungle-gym lounge areas, with decor in all colors from baby blue to fuschia to mint, both inside the house and out. Arakawa and Gris also built a series of “Reversible Destiny” loft apartments in Mitaka, Japan.
