Shaker Furniture, 1800s-1900s
.
The anonymous simplicity of Shaker furniture has been praised well outside the small community of people who developed it for 200 years. Based on what they called the Three P's (plainness, practicality, and pride), the influence of its delicate craftsmanship, "unembellished by any superfluities which add nothing to its goodness or durability", has been acknowledged by designers such as Charles Eames and George Nakashima.
.
At its height during the 19th century, the United Society of Believers in Christ's Second Appearing, commonly known as Shakers for the entranced dancing in their rituals, included more than 6000 members living in 19 villages spread around the north-eastern United States. They were celibate, anti-slavery and believed in equal rights for men and women. Their community is regarded as the longest-lived American utopian experiment, in spite of its members not having any children.
.
The architecture of their villages reflects the importance they placed on hard work (which also made them prosperous farmers). The interiors of their homes and workshops is instantly recognizable for the particular style of their furniture, which was dictated by the Mother Colony in New York, and changed only minimally over the years.

Ettore Sottsass with Eulàlia Grau, Three images of the series Metaphors, 1973
.
During the early 1970s, Sottsass went through ‘’a period of emptiness and introvert meditation. Of purification and release from everything that constituted the laws, customs and vocabulary of rationalist culture.’’ His relationship with Catalan artist Eulàlia Grau had him leading a nomadic life between his home and studio base in Milano and extended journeys around Spain. In deep contact with the landscape and its nature, they created a series of small, ephemeral constructions of a fragile appearance and built with poor, rather precarious materials.
.
‘’I felt a deep necessity to visit deserted places, mountains; to re-establish a physical relationship with the cosmos, which is the only real environment, precisely because it can’t be measured, foreseen, controlled or known… it seemed to me that if anything was to be regained we would have to begin by regaining microscopic gestures and elementary actions, the sense of one’s own position…’’
.
The photographs of the interventions, taken by Sottsass himself, reveal a very particular point of view, in equal parts poetry and irony, both playful and grounded. They are an experimental reflection on the nomadic lifestyle and a reacquaintance with the essence of architecture: its language and its relation to the human body.

Heath West, 2010s
.
Disappointed by the everyday rigidity of an architecture office, West left the construction industry to pursue a career as a full-time painter. His works reveal this background in the form of diagrammatic compositions that show sequences of spaces framed by architectural elements (walls, windows, floor...).
.
Windows and thresholds reveal rooms emptied of any object that would indicate their use. Inside these rooms, other doors and windows unveil the outside, represented as an abstract horizon line or by more elaborate and recognizable constructions. There is an ambiguity in the position of the observer of the painting. Is the viewer outside looking in looking out? Or is it already inside?

Larissa Sansour, In Vitro, 2019
.
Danish-Palestinian artist Larissa Sansour’s film “In Vitro”, commissioned by the Danish Pavilion for the Biennale di Venezia, explores the life of the survivors of an eco-disaster in an underground bunker beneath the city of Bethlehem.
.
After the apocalypse, the survivors converted an abandoned nuclear reactor into their home and planted an orchard that could eventually be transported and replanted to the soil above. Decades after, two scientists engage in a conversation that delves on the topics of nostalgia, exile, and collective memory. The older is the dying founder of the subterranean orchard; her successor is a young woman born underground as part of a cloning program, who is destined to bring life back to a town she has never seen.
.
The huge spaces built in concrete and the absence of a relationship between interior and exterior propose an idea of domesticity that is very far away from our understanding of what "home" is. But for its younger inhabitants, it's all they have ever seen.

Georges Rousse, Anamorphose
.
Georges Rousse’s pieces work in two different stages. The first one involves the creation of a site-specific intervention in a particular space, normally an abandoned building. The second one is the photograph of said space, taken from a very precise point of view, in which the three-dimensional intervention becomes an abstract two-dimensional composition that hides the complexity of its construction. He is a photographer, but also a painter and a sculptor.
.
Coming from a scientific background (he was studying medicine when he became interested in photography), it was the discovery of both land art and Malevich’s Suprematism that pushed him to realize his first works in the field. Their influence is apparent in the powerful simplicity of the part of the work that remains, the resulting image. While his interventions are often ephemeral, the photographs are not, and so the viewer only gets to see a defined optical illusion, and not the effort behind it.
.
From a fragment of the biography in his website:
“His raw material is Space: the space of deserted buildings. Taking his inspiration from a site's architectonic quality and the light he finds there, he quickly chooses a « fragment » and creates a mise-en-scène, keeping in mind his ultimate goal, creating a photographic image. In these empty spaces, Georges Rousse constructs a kind of utopia that projects his vision of the world - his imaginary universe.”

Peter Menzel and Faith D'Aluisio, Hungry Planet: What the World Eats, 2005
.
In 1994, photojournalist Peter Menzel invited families around the world to be photographed in the company of all of their possessions for the book "Material World". After the success of that book, in 2005 he teamed up with writer Faith D'Aluisio in a similar project, though this time the focus was on the food that 24 families around the globe consumed in any given week.
.
The portrayals of the families show the cultural disparities between the ways of living in different parts of the world in terms not only of the food displayed, but also on the people's clothes and the spaces they inhabit. Moreover, and to the surprise of probably no one, they reveal that the more "advanced" the country, the less sustainable their lifestyle is, and the more indistinguishable it becomes from the rest of "advanced" countries.
.
In the pictures shown here, families from Japan, Kuwait, Ecuador, and Norway.

Morphosis, 2-4-6-8 House, 1978
.
"Our client, who served as the builder of this project, desired a room for privacy and meditation which could function for a broad range of activities. This studio was to be added onto a 1920's beach bungalow.
.
Because we wished to communicate with the client and were interested in the formal terms of the design of the house, we created a “Revell-like“ kit. This kit documented the project in a familiar format that could be understood by a layperson and could help to alleviate some of the fear and confusion inherent in undertaking such a formidable task. The kit contained two posters, which catalogued the building materials and described a basic step-by-step construction assembly. A pocket-sized set of working drawings served as the major means of communication with the client."

Arne Svenson, The Neighbors, 2013
.
"The Neighbors project began when I inherited a long-focus lens and started photographing the occupants of the glass-walled apartment building across the street from my Manhattan studio. I was transfixed by the divergent narratives, obstructed by reflections and the patina of dust on glass, that were created in the segmented windows. (...)
I was stringent about not revealing the identities of the subjects because I was not photographing these people as specific, identifiable personages, but more as representations of human kind, of us. I only reveal the turn of the head, the back against a window, the legs under a table. These tiny scenarios and actions reveal a humanness that is unconsciously truthful and tender.”
.
In his project "The Neighbors", photographer Arne Svenson constructs a series of quasi-abstract compositions that expose the inner life of a glazed building in TriBeCa behind the grid structure of the window frames.
.
The portrayals are intimate in that they reveal everyday moments up close and without artifice, but at the same time they keep the observer detached by concealing the inhabitants' faces. In opposition to Hitchcock's Rear Window, where James Stewart plays a photographer who becomes obsessed with his neighbours’ activities and misdemeanours, Svenson's photographs do not intend to judge or reveal secrets of other people's lives, but rather seem to use them as parts of a still life.
.
Not surprisingly, the people depicted in the photographs were not pleased with the invasion of their privacy, and sued the photographer, but their claims were dismissed in two separate occasions on First Amendment grounds.

Rachel Whiteread, House, 1993
.
Rachel Whiteread (1963) won the Turner Prize in 1993 for House, a temporary work that consisted on creating a concrete cast out of a Victorian house that was going to be demolished, the last one standing on the edge of a new public part, Wennington Green. Later, as she tore down the original walls that had served as the mold for the work, what remained was the empty space turned into matter, standing still in the middle of a street.
.
House worked in many levels.
.
After its completion on October 25th 1993, it created a highly controversial debate between art critics, politicians and the general public about contemporary art: its meaning, its value, its importance. Despite many efforts to the contrary, it was finally demolished on January 11th 1994.
.
On a more conceptual level, the work was a thought-provoking take on the idea of “home”. By turning space into a massive sculpture, and thus inverting the mass and void, House makes the space for life, the air between the walls of the rooms, visible, existent in itself; while at the same time making it completely uninhabitable. The house is much more “present” than it ever was, but it is not really a house. .

Eliel Saarinen, Interior drawings of Suur-Merijoki Manor, 1903
.
In 1900, a trio of young Finnish architects (Eliel Saarinen, Herman Gesellius and Armas Lindgren) were hired to build a villa in the area of Viborg, then in Finland (now part of the Russian territory).
.
Saarinen's perspective drawings of the interiors show the great detail with which the house was projected, including made-to-measure furniture and textiles.  It became one of the jewels of the Art Nouveau, and was broadly published at the time. It was destroyed during the war in the 1940s.
