CAT scan data is often visualised using a three-dimensional grid of discrete data, known as an isosurface. The Streaming House project questions if a parallel technique could be explored using a video stream, which has a similar form of data as an isosurface. A video stream of Mies van der Rohe's modernist architectural form, the Barcelona Pavilion, is taken as a starting point on which the prototypical experiment can occur.

This project by Paul Minifie employs the isosurfacing technique as a novel means of generating new architectural form from Mies' seminal work. The resulting project provides a contemporary re-examination of this historic architectural work, and demonstrates an innovative and precise architectural design technique.

It was selected for inclusion in Convergence: Hotspots Melbourne at the 2004 Architectural Biennale Beijing. The Streaming House has been published twice in leading Australian journal, the Architectural Review, as well as through international recognition in books including 10 x 10_2 100 Architects 10 Critics published by Phaidon Press and in Built Diagrams edited by Ilka Ruby, Andreas Ruby and Philip Ursprung."
