Bioscleave House, also known as the LifeSpan-Extending Villa, was designed by artists Arakawa + Gins, with architects Lawrence Marek and Aryeh Siegel. I think engineers Dewhurst, MacFarlane and Partners deserve a lion’s share of the credit for figuring out how to build the 3700 square foot home as envisioned. Completed in 2008, the 3 bedroom, 2 bath house is an example of their “reversible destiny architecture,” the philosophy that the design of a structure can “counteract the usual human destiny of having to die.” The idea is to create a living space that challenges the occupant with physical and mental exercise in order to stay young – sort of a whole body Sudoku.
