The Electric Kool-Aid House

They claim that it was influenced by Mies van der Rohe's Pavilion house. Although it is missing the bulbous and curvaceousness of the psychedelic Sixties, the influence appears to be more of electric Kool-Aid of that period rather than the restrained organization of the steel and glass modern icon built as the German Pavilion in 1929 for the Barcelona International Exhibition. The Stamberg Aferiat House, designed by Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat, is located on Shelter Island in New York. In what seems to me to be a windstorm of plastic bubblegum colored walls made of Lego, I could see Barbie and Ken living here. Fun to look at; but, not my serene abode that I desire.
