CryptoHouses: A project of an architect on the blockchain


What is it?

In the physical world, an architect is a service provider for a client to have a shelter. Each project has a different location, context, program, and even a story for the architects to consider. The design is shaped around these constraints to create the "best" outcome for the client. However, mostly the client cannot have noticeable effects on the result. The architects force the client with only one iteration.

Imagine a world, an architect provides many iterations to a client for a project. Each of them is similar, shaped around constraints such as location, context, and program but also unique with little differences thanks to variables. What if a client has options to choose the final design. What if a client is a decision-maker for the most important stage of the design process, the result.

The CryptoHouses is an experiment to create and store an architectural project that has simple, contemporary, residential architecture as a non-fungible token on the Ethereum blockchain. An algorithm is created to design house iterations for the CryptoHouses. All the houses are algorithmically generated base on the parameters. Each of the CryptoHouses meets the necessary needs for the project. They are shaped around constraints but also unique with little differences. The clients can choose the outcome among the iterations. Thus, every client can determine the result of the project for themselves.


NFTs pack all the CryptoHouse iterations separately to create verifiable digital scarcity and the possibility of asset interoperability across platforms. For this experiment, each iteration of the CryptoHouses has 3d architectural render of the design. However, NFTs have the power to contain 3d models, renders, and even construction drawings for the advanced stage.


How does it work?

In total there are almost 30 parameters for each CryptoHouse. Nine of the parameters are random in a range. Others are calculated by using the random parameters as variables. The parameters include information for:

  • Dimensions

  • Locations

  • Angles

  • Colors

  • Possibilities

Here are the main steps that the algorithm run through to create a house:
