Chestnut Hill, Pennsylvania, 1961

I like this house.

It’s complex and simple and open and closed and big and little.

It represents diversity and inclusion.

It’s not nervous.

It has tension.

It’s elemental.

It’s contradictory.

It’s fragmented.

It does not achieve ‘easy harmony’ (LESS IS MORE) said Le Corbusier.
