A set of algorithms and functions have created these interesting shaped houses that resemble flower petals when viewed from above. The unique architecture was designed by Huan Miao Khoo as part of a student digital architecture research at The University of Sydney, Australia.The design project is titled Composite Environment: Digital Housing. The design has been carefully considered, with intricate details and layered with geometric patterns. Each housing unit is unique, simple and intriguing.

Furthermore, the houses are not only visually striking, but they are also eco-friendly. The dwellings are climate responsive to maintain a comfortable temperature all year round. In addition, the construction methods allow the architecture to be built with less waste. Construction waste is reduced to just 2 percent, compared to up to 40 percent wastage occurred during conventional building processes.
