Modern Life Extending House

Saw an article on this, the "Bioscleave House Life Extending Villa" and had to capture it. Says it's a remodel of an A frame based on Frank Lloyd Wright principles. Besides form following function, what Wright principles do you see?

About: This house was designed with the goal that the occupants be disoriented, uncomfortable, and thrown off balance, because, the thought goes, when you get comfortable, death is not far behind. The thinkers behind this “life-affirming environment” were the artist-poet-architect/ husband-and-wife team Arakawa and Madeline Gins. This “life-affirming” was part of their plan to cheat the fate that awaits everyone else. Alas, Arakawa died in May, 2010. 

Built as an extension to a 1964 A-frame house based on principles of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture, Bioscleave House also comes with its own set of directions for use.
