Dalton Bloom embarked on a journey to build a unique structure in the sweeping hills of Austin.
He convinced his architect friend Charles Harker, who, in the early 1970s, studied at the University of Texas and looked for a graduation project.
After agreeing on the details, work has commenced on the organic structure of the Bloomhouse. The construction started in 1973, and it took Harker and his team eleven years to finish building the curvy house.
The hand-built 1,101 square feet (102 square meters) sculptural formation is made of steel rebar, polyurethane foam, and cement stucco.
