But when we took a closer look at this unique housing prototype by St. Andre-Lang Architects, we couldn’t help but be won over.
According to Arch Daily, the project won the Archi<20 competition and was built with a budget of 7000 euros. The prototype is 20 square meters and the corn facade was inspired by corn dryers in the Alscase plains. Metal mesh surrounding the circular home allows for corn cob storage. As the seasons change, so does the corn facade, effectively blurring an immediate reading of the object and almost erasing the pavilion from intruding on its surroundings.
Functional and creative design? Well, that’s not corny at all.
