Ever wondered where that coastal house you’ve always wanted, with ample space for your 911, a sunny beach or a real life shark tank comes from?
The answer may lay in modern architecture, particularly from the 1900’s onwards. Although the subject is prone to some extensive theoretical debate, all can be brought to the question, functionality or appearance? And, whereas some say that “form follows function” we rather believe as Oscar Niemeyer would say, “form follows beauty”, especially if it is of a feminine kind. So, if you are dreaming with that special villain’s lair we strongly recommend that you get onto the task of reviewing the likes of Louis Khan, Frank Lloyd Wright or John Lautner.
Alas, we take leave with some exquisite examples…
