A Critical Analysis of the Architecture of Couch Cushion Structures


In a two part series, an “Industrious Architecture” company named BUILD has collected, analyzed, and graded several wonderful examples of structures built with the most readily available materials for the young aspiring architect: couch cushions.

Their analysis of each structure is highly entertaining even if you don’t know your T-cushions from your box cushions. The rating on the above structure? A solid A+ for it’s “brilliant synergy between the weighted foundation and the light tensile structure” and “attenuation of structure and bright interior spaces.”
