Dream Teen Party House

Peter Stamburg and Paul Aferiat of Stamburg Aferiat Architecture in New York have created this residence just north of the Hamptons inspired by "zinging colours of Miami Deco and 1980s Po-Mo."  The fragmentation of colors, shapes, and structures is to resemble that of a Cubist composition - every different plane is given a different exciting and bright color.  An intentional homage is paid to Mies van der Rohe's Barcelona Pavilion by the inclusion of two separate pavilions surrounding a central pool.  This house is fun in theory, but it's a little too bright for my own tastes.
