Would You Live In This Japanese Transparent Home?

Forget watching Big Brother, if you walk past this house in Japan you can see literally everything going on without the aid of hidden cameras.

There's no room for privacy - every moment, intimate or not is on display to the world 24/7.

Located in the densely populated city of Tokyo, the house is completely transparent, measuring an impressive 914 square-foot in total.

It was built and designed by Sou Fujimoto Architects, who were initially inspired by ancient Japanese elders who use to live in trees & who's living quarters were able to be seen by all.

"The intriguing point of a tree is that these places are not hermetically isolated but are connected to one another in its unique relativity. To hear one’s voice from across and above, hopping over to another branch, a discussion taking place across branches by members from separate branches."

"These are some of the moments of richness encountered through such spatially dense living." says Sou Fujimoto.

The question remains, would you be happy to live there?
