... Denmark, this thoroughly modern house draws its unique feature not from a scientific advance, but from the era of Viking sagas.

Seaweed is incorporated in three ways:

1.The exterior seaweed stuffed cylinders take the place of shingles or clapboard.

2.The algae is also used as insulation.

3.The seaweed additionally is used in the ceiling as insulation and for optimizing the acoustics in the home.

 

The family has sworn off sushi.....enough is enough!

just kidding......LOL

 

The New Seaweed House is a collaboration between architecture firm Vandkunsten and Readania Byg an organization that spends millions of dollars each year preserving Denmark’s material cultural by restoring historical properties and funding the development of new experimental designs that reflect Danish sensibilities.

I.M. Pei greatly admired Le Corbusier and was friends with the Bauhaus architects Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer. Pei was inspired by the innovative designs of the new International style, characterized by simplified form and the use of glass and steel materials.
