As a species, humans tend to avoid vulnerability. It's a safety mechanism. We want to feel confident, comfortable and sure. Architecture can be similar. We tend to want things to be very clean, both on paper and in the finished product. I would tend to blame most of that on Mies, but I digress. In our desire for a clean design, sometimes we miss the opportunities that randomness can provide. This project, The Naked House by Taller Estilo Arquitectura is a great example of letting the natural look and feel of the materials shine through and inform the design. The materials help to delineate the space, but also gives the user a variation in texture and color to enhance their experience. No synthetics or imitations here. Even though the faux materials have gotten very good, I believe subconsciously that you'll always know and appreciate the real deal. Enjoy!
