I think every architect should have one of these. Not this house, per se, but a laboratory for their ideas. This project is built on a plot of land owned by Randy Brown (of Randy Brown Architects) and intended this architecture to continue throughout his lifetime, never to be completed. For many designers, having a project that would never end would seem unbearable. This is correlated with the tendency to design a project, then forget about it. That seems to be counter productive. Why start at ground zero every time? Why not build on what you've done? In this case, Mr. Brown has created something of an architectural journal; a continual reminder of his journey with it's accompanying lessons. It's not easy, you're basically putting everything out for all to see, criticize, demean, belittle, etc. However, if you can withstand all of that, the reward for actually developing one's ideas and architectural ability is well worth it.
