I focused my masters thesis on silence in architecture, and here I have been collecting examples of what silent architecture could be.
I spent the summer traveling and developing my thesis topic under the guise of wanderlust summer.
Like the surrealists, the lettrists were thoroughly impressed by Cheval’s Palais Idéal. That the Palais had been produced by a postman as a continual, playful, expressive outpouring only added to the attractions of the building’s fantastic appearance. Moreover, it mixed its sources and references with utter indifference to precedent. It was, in Potlatch's opinion, “the first manifestation of an architecture of disorientation” in the way in which it “‘détournes' the forms of diverse exotic monuments, and of a stone vegetation.”
