Hurricane House

 

This ‘hurricane house’ was designed by New York-based architect Edwin Koch in 1939. According to Popular Science, “[t]his amazing dwelling would revolve automatically to face into the oncoming storm, meeting it like the wing of an airplane and passing it smoothly around its curving sides toward its pointed tip.” It was designed to pivot around a master point in the middle of the house through which electricity, water and sewage could be routed.
