"Regard it as just as desirable to build a chicken house as to build a cathedral."
Frank Lloyd Wright
When I read this weeks topic I remembered the chicken my grandfather had when I was a child. What fascinated me most was the rooster with his iridescent feathers, the colours ranging from green to black. Whenever I visited my grandpa I had to go to the chicken house to admire the rooster. When my primary school teacher left at the end of the second year, I even made one of plasticine and gave it to her as a farewell present.
Having worked as an architectural drafter for several years I am of course acquainted with the works of Frank Lloyd Wright. His most famous private building (and the one I like best - apart from the Guggenheim Museum, N.Y.) being 'Falling Water' I combined the two: the chicken actually live in a chicken house resembling it.
Also I wanted the house to look like an architectural drawing and contrasting the realism of the chicken.
