Along with "clean, simple lines" this has to be the most overused expression i keep seeing on this and other sites, used so often to justify anything that is bland, and without a shred of real originality.
please tell us how you really feel about this.
oh I dont disagree, actually I have met one of the guys that runs this firm and this is definitely the kind of things they do, though when it comes to household, it definitely is not practical.
Though I will say this, after watching the little video, my first though was, this is a firm with alot of free time on their hands lately because there hasnt been too many jobs to go around.
The whole "honest expression," that is mostly just poetic architecture crap, though I do like the idea of trying to use prefabricated materials and trying to understand ways to use them beyond what we are currently using them...nothing wrong with playing around with that idea.
But if this was a final project being presented at a final review, it would probably get torn to shreds.
