House for a Situationist (and her family)

BY JOSH JOHNSON
@ VOL 26 ON APR 12, 2018

Josh Johnson is a local architect whose side job, hobby, pastimes, and preoccupations involve architecture.  Do not tell him that you wanted to be an architect at a cocktail party.  If he has had a couple of drinks, he will tell you that you made a huge mistake and it will be sad and awkward.  He has been working on a particular house over the last several years.  There is no client, except he thinks that it is a house for everyone:  a Volkshouse if you will. It is subversive though well behaved,and it is both pro- and anti-American.
