Re: Re: [Article] An Irish House Hides in Plain Sight
Thanks for the link, igy. Quite interesting, though as is always the way the other photos are more revealing than the one chosen as the lead image.
Also interesting in highlighting the fact that the way to do ‘progressive’ rural architecture is to make the building invisible. Seems like an admission of something.
In Mr. Stevensâ€™s view, the houseâ€™s invisibility was less important to the department than his past experience with them. The council is â€œmore progressive than people realize,â€ he said, and in any case, â€œIâ€™m local, not up from Dublin trying to put something funny on them.â€
I still don’t get what DS’s wife’s eating habits have to do with it. I guess that’s what you get with articles in the Home and Garden section of the NYT.
