The Perfect $80 House?

The little house above, a modernist confection with a gently sloping butterfly roof and eccentrically angled clerestory windows, clad in edible materials (gingerbread and sugary icing) is available from the online gift company Red Envelope. It seems like the perfect symbol for an event that’s happening at KGB this Thursday night.

Writer David Womack, sculptor Elizabeth Demaray and I will be reading from works that “address the concept of home from different angles.” I, of course, will be reading from The Perfect $100,000 House. The reading is the first in a series sponsored by the School of Visual Arts’ new Design Criticism program, affectionately known as D-Crit.  Here are the details:

Thursday, November 29, 7:00–9:00 p.m.
KGB Bar, 85 East 4th Street,
More info: 212.592.2561
Free admission!

P.S. A tip of the Itinerant Urbanist’s hat to Sharon Harkey, aka The Purple Shark, aka The World’s Greatest Transcriber, for sending me the gingerbread link.

P.P.S. Candies used for embellishment may contain nuts.
