Moon River

 

The gated community phenomenon has unilaterally discriminated against modern design, reducing the role of the architect in these communities to stylists of pastiche and their clients into consumers of

mediocrity.

 

In an expanding housing market the hegemony is clearly the gated community with McMansions. This project encapsulates the struggle that clients and designers have with developers and community review boards to make a modern house.

 

These communities have created strict rules to ensure the homogeneity of the traditional pastiche. In doing so, they discriminate

against the modern aesthetic.
