Vertical Glass House is a housing prototype for a high-density contemporary city and discusses the notion of transparency in verticality while serving as a critic of Modernist transparency in horizontality. Vertical Glass House is on one hand spiritual: With enclosed walls and transparent floors as well as roof, the house opens to the sky and the earth, positions the inhabitant right in the middle, and creates a place for meditation. On the other hand, Vertical Glass House is material: Vertical transparency visually connects all the utilities,ductworks, and furniture, including staircase, into a system of domesticity and provides another reading of the modern theory of "Architecture as living machine".
