Landesberg and Quatrale discuss their contributions to the Olympic Dream Project in Atlanta, Georgia. The series of homes proposed and constructed were intended to serve as a modesty screen between a troubled neighborhood/parking lot and the Olympic stadium. By means of the project Bows & Beaus, they sought to explore “veluptuousness” in barriers. Through exploration of materiality and technique, tactility and architecture, they found feminine qualities. While “tying the knot” is a sign of ultimate affection, excess beyond the knot is necessary for structural stability. Their project sought to legitimize itself, as a child seeks legitimacy, through challenging of hierarchical norms. The Adam’s Eyeball retirement home project, incorporates elements of liquification and eye characteristics and relationships between the building and its surroundings.
