DÉCIMO PRIMEIRO LIVRO
A FAMILY OF EUCLIDIAN PALACES
These palaces are out of my second book. They are some of the villas from my imaginary and suburban "campagna". Some are descendants of the soft house that have gone straight. Some of them originally turned and twisted. All of them are now precise and geometric - all of them are generated from basic grids.
Most of the roofs of these houses are halves or quarters of tiled pyramids, either inverted or resting on gutters. Some are pyramids or slices of pyramids with stepped or serrated edges.
It amuses me to imagine them coming together; the House of the broken pediment is the other half of a bank residence. Casa Boesch is a quarter of them both together.
