Inverse architecture.

November 29, 2011

No architect in site here.  Never was, never will be.  Just a local guy taking care of his property.  Looks like he owns the one next door as well.  They must have had a sale on turquoise paint.   Architects like to call this vernacular.  That way they can pinch and rename an idea or two for later use.  If properly sealed the CMU and concrete porch will hold up to the weather and the balusters are pretty amazing.  I couldn’t tell if they were pre-fab concrete or just vinyl.  Either way, if there is such a thing as inverse architecture, this is it.

  1. It is a perfect color for a Mexican house. I love their vibrant colors, It definitely is wrong for these houses. If you wanted to do vibrant/garish then they really needed to go all out and ditch the white.

    Sometimes bold and bad go together. Tepid and bad obviously failed on this house.
