I love houses that cannot be categorized. Or maybe they all can be……anyone got a name for this style?

Thats so easy. This is late mid-century, pop-up pagoda style. The second floor lowers down into the main structure during high winds or when the house is moving, say going camping or to a dead show.
Next question please. I’m available as a guest lecturer on wide variety of architecture and design topics.
Late Mid-Century Pop-up Pagoda Style! Are the diagonal window muntins important to this classification?
Perhaps you can lecture at the next Berkeley Historical Society Meeting.
How about Jack-in-the Box Mansard?
going with the theme that the upper floor can retract….which seems like a technical challenge.
