William O’Brien Junior’s Twins design

William O’Brien Jr. is Assistant Professor of Architecture at the MIT School of Architecture and Planning, and is principal of an independent design practice in Cambridge, Massachusetts. His practice was recently awarded the 2011 Architectural League Prize for Young Architects and Designers. Twins is a design proposal for two vacation homes for two brothers and their families on one plot of land in upstate New York and represents an examination of a curious part to whole relationship.

The mathematical principle of ‘dissection’ states that any two regular polygons with equal areas can be divided into set of similar shapes; ‘minimal dissection’ is the pursuit of the fewest number of subdivisions in each polygon. Another great project by William O’Brien Jr. is the Allansdale House. I don’t know what exactly attracts me so much about his innovative projects; they are so clean and spacious, ingeniously fitting in their natural surroundings. I wouldn’t mind having him build my future properties.
