1979 House in Pittsburgh [Venturi Scott-Brown] HIPERGRÁFICA


























Interesante uso de una hipergráfica que deforma los elementos arquitectónicos con los que se entremezcla. Venturi y Scott-Brown expresan de esta forma sus intenciones:

"This is a small house for a compact, sloping, wooded site that you come upon suddenly and don’t ever see from a distance.

It’s a small building whose explicit surface ornament helps to give it a big scale, making of it a house and a pavilion.  At the time, its ornamental elements and expressionistic form were considered unusual." (Venturi, Scott-Brown)
