Jury Comments
Published around the world, the image of a defiantly ‘destroyed’ California house made of unexpectedly humble materials ignited responses as far as Europe and Asia.
As often with ground-breaking efforts, the provocative house invited astonishment, admiration, and contempt. Even with a groundswell of disdain, the house eventually justified its place in architectural history by offering a strong rebuttal to the kitsch neo-historic approach of postmodernism.
It ignited a forum to consider the relationship between art and architecture, which fueled the subsequent waves of architect and artist collaborative projects in the ‘80s, further expanding the role of the architect in culture.
