Clicking around this morning, I found the work of Lúcio Santos – lots of modularity exploring slightly offset asymmetric repetitiveness. The house pictured here, for instance, “a detached single-family home, pre-manufactured and assembled on site,” can also be stacked further upon itself in a kind of vertical stutter to form towers.
On its own, it also vaguely resembles a prosthetic knuckle, or some other sort of avant-garde medical device manufactured from high grade plastic.
House for David Cronenberg.
Santos’s modular dining experience is also worth zooming in on – a prototype table/seating unit perhaps soon to grace a kitchen (or campground) near you. Or perhaps it’s a new kind of shelter for street chess players.
