How do two persons live together without getting sick of each other? My solution in 2003 was to design a hypothetical house comprising two separate annexes, one for each member of the couplehood. Amidst the mutual exclusivity and privacy are spaces and moments of intrusions and connections - slit windows, the rooftop pool etc. - aimed at regulating desire. Appropriating the human figures of uber-macho men and the purist architectural forms of Corbusier, this work suggests a neurotic solution to an impossible/perennial search of self and relationship.
