Wall House 2 is an extraordinary intersection of architecture, cubist painting, and surrealist sculpture.  It employs the vocabulary of Le Corbusier in the way it explores the relationship between inside and outside.

Architect John Hejduk originally designed the home in 1973 for a forested site in Connecticut, but was abandoned due to concerns over construction costs.  Hejduk died in 2000, never having seen it built.  But in 2001 construction began on the home on a new site in Groningen in the Netherlands.  Scaled up 20 percent from its original size, it's 2,500 square feet, and will be used for public, semi-public, and private purposes.
