Couch Cushion Architecture

April 25th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Here’s a wonderfully cute critical analysis of couch cushion forts collected from around the internet:

A brilliant synergy between the weighted foundation and the light tensile structure, this project impressed us with its attenuation of structure and bright interior spaces. The courtyard and formal entry are also well thought-out and provide a clear means of way-finding. Grade A+

Made me chuckle.  See more over at BUILDblog.
