Sorry as someone who has lived in a Frank Lloyd Wright home they suck.  The built in furniture is uncomfortable and dated.  The rooms are cold and small.  Built only for looks no comfort allowed.

I hope they treated the rusty steel bc if it isn't then these folks are going to have a pretty nasty issue with rust residue on glass, walls, and anything below the building.

'The two-story concrete wall that lines the open-riser stairway absorbs heat in the winter ..'.  And from someone who has lived in a concrete structure, winters are going to be VERY cold in this house and will require much, much more heat than a drywalled home to keep it at a comfortable temp in winter.

And to blend seemlessly it would have to dug into the earth.  A great example of our further encroachment into what was a pristine natural area now divided into private properties.

Has the editor that wrote the headline even heard of Frank Lloyd Wright?

You people are so negative and short-sighted! The house is built on stilts to protect it from global sea rise and it will blend in perfectly after after the grass dies and turns brown when the atmosphere heats up another .0000069 degrees centigrade.

What an antiseptic, Better-Homes-and-Gardens but never lived-in looking building.  Certainly not a home.

GIve me a break, "blends seemlessly". In case you hadn't noticed, it sticks out like a house built precisely where it shouldn't be built! Further, MIT needed to design a house for a locale 2,500 miles away? I would guess that the thousands of engineers, architects and institutions of higher learning in the Norcal, Oregon and Washington area might just be a tad offended.

Blend in?  How about perched upon.  And on stilts no less.  (I do like the view of the other homes in the foreground).  

"Blend in" would/should be 'to make inobtrusive'  to anyone and still present the highlight views the owner is looking for. 

Perhaps with better photographs we could agree that this house does what it has been presented as doing but, I'm sorry, there are better examples of naturalizing a home to its surroundings and creating dramatic views.

Oh, I see.  You can see the sky thru the windows.  That must be what makes it blend in.  I'm sure it was worth raping the earth for all the "natural" products that went in to its construction.

" a house that blends in w/ surroundings."  It looks like a big sore thumb sticking out...all harsh corners, glass, metal...don't see it " blending in."
