Eisenstein’s Story-Board Summerhouse takes inspiration from an unlikely place: film theory. The design was done by Metris Architecture using Eisenstein's idea of montage editing.

When applying this style to building, the goal is to have viewers see each area of the house as a series of different clips, like one does when watching a video. "The form twists and turns, dancing along a main axis, guiding the user’s eye as it moves between planes, floors, and ceilings, like a camera shifting towards views of the basin’s flowing water and the waves of the calm sea," according to DesignBoom.

Using film theory as a basis for architecture is certainly something new, but it works well with how Metris has approached this design.
