Artist Grayson Perry’s first building. It tells the fictional story of an Essex woman whose husband had the house built as a shrine on her death. It is covered in green and white tiles that depict Julie pregnant and naked. Grayson Perry’s artwork is all over the inside include tapestries detailing Julie’s life, ceramics, mosaics. All featured in a BBC Channel 4 documentary. Some will roll their eyes.
However, I see this house about once a month when I get my Living Architecture
newsletter (which I subscribe to as I was trying to get a place at A Room for London
). And I just like it.
Have a nice weekend!
