Slimy Drawings

Architect partnership Ushida Findlay's 'Slimy Drawings' for Soft and Hairy House (Ibaraki, Japan 1994) and Truss Wall House (Tokyo, Japan 1993).

The houses carry a signature, organic configuration of space where inside becomes outside and vice-versa. Therefore conventional plans and elevations won't do, as expressions of the house-to-come. So they developed 'slimy drawings' in order to see everything at once. Somehow this is more poetic than a CGI flythrough; although that might be my limitation.
