  1. Let’s see, you live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and you decide to buy some property on the outskirts of town and live in a sterile white box. Hmmm.

    The floor plan and elevations are fascinating, thorough, intellectual and maybe even beautiful. But I’ve been there, and nothing is gained by actually constructing such mental masturbations. Projects like this should be kept on paper (or lego), like Eisenman did with House X.

  2. Actually I like the model a lot. The actual building however should be demolished IMO. If your building is not an improvement over the nature it replaces….

  3. Sure, but you could probably say that about most, if not all, architecture. This site/building relationship makes more sense to me than something like Fallingwater.
