Urban Tree House

Street Art // Friday, May 20, 2011
Living off the grid, not paying rent, and building our own tree house in the middle of the forest has always been enticing.  It would be better to wake up in the city, jump out of your tree house and get on the bus to work.  Occupants may have to be experienced palm tree climbers to get street side.

California Crazy

Street Art // Wednesday, May 18, 2011
California Crazy: Roadside Vernacular Architecture, documents the bizarre designs of privately owned businesses in California. The back cover states, “California Crazy is the style of architecture that seems to typify California itself: naive, direct, unpretentious. These buildings were designed to catch the eye, to be remembered. No ad agency conceived them – they were often designed by the owners themselves, poured of ferro concrete and shaped by the undisguised desire to sell.”
