House envy...

Ahhh, the Olson Kundig "Brain" House. Staple fodder for design blogs, but it's always worth a perv. I've been terrible at blogging recently, as I'm in Australia visiting the parents, who don't get internet access or phone reception in the wilds of Far North Queensland. Looking around me at the ever rotting pole home, that needs more maintenance to keep the moisture at bay than a ship, I cannot for the life of me see why we just didn't build something like "The Brain". The intellectual bunker look just can't be beaten in tropical climes. If you don't know the architects, they're a name worth knowing - taking design from where Lloyd Wright left off, and turning it into a more subtle statement.
