  1. I first became a fan of this style of roof in the mid 1970’s. A friend of my father’s – an engineer by the name of Lou Harding – designed many of these in Western Australia. They can be spectacular.


  2. I have a hyperbolic paraboloid roof house in the Hamptons. LOVE it . . . . it’s circular with a pool in the center. By architect John Rawlings, c 1967.
