Hyperbole here.
?Fabricating the cottage with only three sides is significant. It pushes the work away from being read as architecture and moves it closer to being sculpture and clearly artifice dealing with notions of land use, building style and lifestyle.? Show Home is a work that will cause animated debate on the subject of art in the landscape of our towns and cities ? and cause us to seriously examine whether the rural idyll is ultimately an urban illusion.
