Re: 2006, it started with the notion of turning the wall of Hejduk's Wall House 2 into a brise-soleil, which quickly turned into combining Wall House 2 with Le Corbusier's Tower of Shadows at Chandigarh. The Tower of Shadows is especially enigmatic in that walls disappear and reappear with respect to the positions from which one is looking at the building--not quite, but kind-of parallax. The height of the Tower of Shadows has been slightly adjusted upward to be more in sync with Wall House 2.
The Villa Savoye combined with some rotate/extrude surfaces was just to see what the results might be. Soon thereafter, Smokety McSmoke Smoke started a "stoner food" thread here in the forum, and I posted a similar to above image and called it a Stoner Food Restaurant. And within a year I saw somewhere on the web that some architecture student turned the Villa Savoye into a fast-food restaurant (which I doubt was an unrelated incident).
