antti lovag, the anti-architect

antti lovag is perhaps the original bubble boy, the kind of wild and crazy designer that clients fear and other designers envy. with quotes such as 'i don't know what it's going to be like, i don't know when it's going to be finished, and i don't know how much it's going to cost,' it is pretty amazing that he had any clients at all. popular in the 60s and 70s, he invented a method called 'habitology', aiming to create structures built on principles of bringing people closer to nature through organic, non-linear forms. one of his most interesting works is the Pierre Cardin house, near Cannes (photo below)
