the frontiers of architecture
It's only a horse barn. And a garage. And an expression of desire. What it doesn't represent is an effort towards revolutionary design, and I think the client was grateful for that. In fact, the issue never came up. An architect signals expected performance through past jobs, and consequently, a design style can be solidified and sustained. A dilemma for designers is how much change should be sought after and tolerated in the context of a commission. Commercial projects like hospitals and schools tend to have fixed parameters and expected solutions. However, there tend to be enough challenges that make the projects unique.
