This tiny plinth is a fundamental act of architecture, it was created for the 24-hour event 24x24x24 at the Storefront for Art and Architecture. A single single honed travertine paver raised just a few inches above the earth with a handrail on three sides. This paver, like those of the Farnsworth House or Neue Nationalgalerie, focuses the viewers’ attention in order to survey a horizontal field. Unlike the dirt floor of Laugier’s primitive house, raising one just a few inches from the earth seems more fundamental for today’s architecture.
