SIX & SIX

Folded Suburban Prerequisite imposed the mythical presence of a secondary site (Domestic Engineer Catharine E. Beecher’s plan for a Cottage Home from 1841) onto the existing one. With the centrally designed kitchen first placed into the belly of the gallery, the expanse of the Cottage Home exceeded the space’s boundaries, each confrontation with the limits forcing a decision to fold inward. Colliding stud frames confused interiors with exteriors, pointing attention to both spatial and social boundaries by re-enacting and proposing an alternative model of everyday space.
