The house represents a point of intersection between the world of man and nature and occupies the territory between existence and imagination, where utopian notions and reality collide. The act of building is an attempt to synthesize these realms. Attached to a place of one’s own are points of connection and disconnection, inclusion and exclusion, aloneness and loneliness. The attempt to combine two opposing worlds leads to the inevitable discovery that perfection is unattainable.
