Ninja Arithmetic LXVII.5

Our ninja Matt K. – who has submitted a number of Ninja Arithmetic equations – sent me this image last week with the following explanation:

So, I had this idea for the Mercedes Benz building by UN Studio to be a Ninja Arithmetic submission after I saw this [YouTube video embedded below].

However, it turned out more like the image attached, so feel free to use that or make your own off the concept.

It begs the question: if building natural disasters into buildings is the next stage of excess-itecture, what’s next? Will Gehry have artificial tsunamis? Will Zaha build an earthquake simulator?


I think that stands on its own as a post. If any of your architectural musings seem interesting, don’t hesitate to drop me an email at
