Houses That Look Like Houses

The Atlantic has rounded up a gallery of houses that look like houses. How meta! “Ask a child to draw you a house and the design will most likely turn out looking like some of these homes. Architects note historical roots and environmental advantages, but house-shaped houses also touch on a feeling deep inside us about what a house — and essentially our home — should look like. The iconic quality of the archetype house is so strong it has transformed it into a pictogram as readable as the word itself.” Indeed. This is kind of clever.
