    Not sure if anyone saw this on Wallpaper, but a pretty cool concept, especially considering its age. 'Il Girasole,' located in northern italy. Rotating house.

    Is there some sort of point to that metal webbing that partially blocks out light?

    Yep. To get people with bad taste to say, "cool" and buy the otherwise banal, zero-build-cost units.

    Secondary purpose is to stroke the arch's ego.

    Structurally? Nope. Light control? Sure, for 20 minutes a day.
