Mi Casa es su Casa... no?

"We boldly go where powder coated rebar reinforced Portland cement will take us.

Or do we?"

by Pat Darnell, Isak Kirinyaga, and Tomik A Sappo

Post Modern id of Domicile, ego of Docents, and superego of Obsolescence... You have just arrived in a home that is couture Francois, but outside it is Houston. You wait in a sitting room where you have been directed by a servant -- a wet-back in a starched white shift. It is starting to bug you, so you attempt to read the Architectural Digest from the coffee table, that has this very house on its cover.

Have you ever Read an Article in Architectural Digest?
Architectural Digest Articles illuminated with extraordinary photography might go something like this:

...Seems unlikely that we heirs of Post Modernism would have any idea why "Post," since when we don't recall any "Modernism."

It turns out there are many architectural schools living up to their names. Ever hear of Ambient Domicile, or Earth Home; Post Nasalize, or how about Fire Box or Tippy Canoe? New to that one? Some say it would require not having read any architectural theory starting around 1960 to miss such architectural movements. However, when we decided to "Explode the Box," we began to question just how large can that organism grow? The answer comes to us through Toy Story: "To Infinity and Beyond..." says Buzz Lightyear.

But when we say Post Modernism -- it sounds like we are saying "To Infinity and Behind."

I am thinking those who slid down the Modernism mountainside got to the valley eventually where all is stasis. It suddenly became necessary to declare that we are now Post Modern-organ-isms. As if this were a case against the inhuman-ism of Modernism, just wait till you see architectural id and docent ego re-define Watershed Walkabout Spaces; and just how that sweeps superego of Modernism under the carpets.
  • Id: Functioning on uncontentious level
  • Ego: Providing functional needs, while not upsetting superego
  • Superego: Contentious behaviors
Thus id is firmly planted in domicile. Architecture is more Modern today than it was when it was Modern. Look for instance at ancient abode, walk ways, and monuments. Eh? What do you see? Leftovers? Yesterday's quiche is the main dish? We all thought we would be ordering ala carte in this French brothel... no?

Form follows Function: is one of Modernists' edicts. Top that one with a Less is More, and "Success is mostly about showing up." Thus Superego is safe and with us in spirit.

It must be ego that is unsteady.

Architecture is depicted in almost every sense as place located in time and space where humans walk about under protective water shed and weather-proofed climate controlled environment... unless one were to include our International Space Station in architectural discussions. ISS is environment controlled protective building for humans to float-about. But, generally Architecture is a place of walking unburdened by weather, climate and man eating animals.

Review: We present a tag line that enables heirs of Modernism to break away from their inherited metamorphosed sediments of constructed obsolescence. We boldly go where powder coated rebar reinforced Portland cement will take us.

Turn of the Century progress --
  1. Since 9\11 all building is obsolete.
  2. Humans do not fare very well in zero gravity for long periods of time, without cataclysmic bone failure due mostly to "no walking about."
Next Article: "What will be our new Magic Numbers for our superego Age of Obsolescence?" Excerpt:
And so, it’s the end of the West University Festival of New Homes until next year. I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing the three houses that really spoke to me. With each house I toured – I came away thinking “This is the ONE!” – how fickle I am. You see, I visited a open house this weekend and let me tell you – boy, was it beautiful. I’m thinking the open house I toured this weekend was the ONE!!! Does anyone know the name of a good psychiatrist in Houston? Specializing in new-house-itis? I’ve been struggling with this disease for a long time now and my husband is insisting that I get cured, quick.
