Twins Houses 别墅设计
波士顿william o’brien jr事务所设计的Twins – houses in five parts，位于美国纽约上州，是为两兄弟设计的两个独立式家庭居住单元，两组住宅由一块线性农业用地连接，且拥有相似的形体特质。
设计通过对“剖切解析”即把等面积多边形划分成完全相同的形状这一算术法则的研究得到内部体量。最终 分别由四个各不相同的四边形和一个三角形形成的两组 ，并有着同样的功能安排，分别被排列进一个正方形和一个六边形的平面布局中。
Twins – houses in five parts的楼板和屋面随着附近地势起伏而变化，创造出一个连接着坡道和台阶的多剖面序列。排水系统将水流导向了一个使用者可方便到达的线性水池中。
