childhood architecture

...comes alive like Frampton

If you asked me to draw a house as a kid, this is what I would have drawn.

Centered door, two windows with four panes, triangle roof, and a chimney. A tree that looked an awful lot like a cloud would probably be nearby.

So imagine my surprise when I drove through Mt. Airy (Cincinnati) the other week and spied the house I architected as a child, albeit with shutters and sans the chimney.

That's so cool. And I think architected is a lovely word...

BTW - have you tried this? A personality test based on how you draw a house. A fun diversion.

However you describe it, it's scary just how much that house matches the image I've had in my brain since childhood, as well.

I'm told architected is not a word.
