The client requested a “Ranch House.” So, in addition to looking at “Ranch Houses,” projects by Aldo Rossi, Frank Gehry, and Samuel Mockbee were also studied. In thinking about “how to transform” something with such a strong associative image, a series of internal office documents render the project in the manner of Peter Eisenman’s House VI as well as Georgia O’Keefe’s Barn paintings.
