The Bavinger House

In 1955 architect Bruce Goff built an “organic house” for artists Nancy and Eugene Bavinger. It was a  spiral with no interior walls. Each “room” was a saucer suspended from the ceiling. Unfortunately the house fell into disrepair and was demolished in 2016.

  1. Last fall, NYT published an article on Goff. serves as another introduction to this original thinker, though arguably less cool than these animations.

    1. He was an interesting man.Thanks for the article.
