The Vertical Glass House is the opposite of conventional housing design. It has floors where the windows should be and windows where the floors should be. Architect Yung Ho Chang designed it that way on purpose. According to the Ho Chang, the house is a 90-degree rotation of the typical glass houses that were being built during the Modernist period. The windowless structure consists of 4-levels which are divided by glass floors. From the basement, occupants can see all the way up to the top floor. The house was originally designed for an urban housing development competition. It now serves as a guest house for visiting artists.
