Over-Engineered Door

door 1

How can you over-engineer a door you might ask?  Well, that’s a question answered by Matharoo Associates.  They’ve designed, and built this interesting door above.  It’s made of 40 individual sections of Teak, with 160 pulleys, 80 ball bearings, and a wire rope connected to a counterweight.  Opening the door happens with a wave of each piece of Teak.  It’s an elegant door, but completely over-engineered, for sure.
