Abstract
A house in the mid-west located on the prairie.

A "get-away" from the busy city of Chicago, a place of quiet repose.

View of the horizontal is intensified by various planes of crops and the plinth.

Fields of crops descend in height to allow the house to rise up and breathe.

A simple grid provides inspiration and gives structure.

A house full of screens provides changing spaces and adjustable levels of privacy and protection.

Views of one screen layered with another provide changing patterns.
