Byehouse / Wallhouse #2

An explicitly theoretical standpoint about architecture lies behind this icon of recent architectural history.

In the early 1970s, the American architect John Hejduk was endeavouring to renew the house. In the Wall House in Groningen it is not a living room or a central hall that forms the core of the house, but a free-standing wall. Hung from this are organically shaped elements in which the house’s main functions, such as eating, living, sleeping and studying, are separately accommodated. Hejduk created an innovative, purified way of living.
