Inside-Out

Like the idea of turning things inside out – using a framework to hang things from and hinge other things to – aiming perhaps for a foldable space, taking away the walls (utter transparency that reminds me of the Farnsworth House and the story that the only functional object  Mies van der Rohe left poor Dr Farnsworth  when she moved into her glass box was a solitary lightbulb)  Linking also to Foucault’s heterotopic ideas about a place withing another place, superimposing one form onto another and with Gray’s way of seeing architecture as a weather and site responsive thing that offers protection from the world – sheltering privacy, providing space to contemplate, party, work and relax.
