Robert Venturi's Lieb House, Frug House


Poor baby. When you was built you didn't think you'd have to go through all this!

Robert Venturi's 1969 Lieb House, in Loveladies NJ, from a 1971 Architecture and Urbanism magazine, and the trailer for the film Saving Lieb House, the ten-day scramble to save the pop-art beach house from the black tide of megamansionism.

 Venturi's "Frug House" a teenage party pavilion near a private swimming pool. Named after the dance, as that's what would've been going on there. Unfortunately it was never built. 

I'm really liking Robert Venturi more and more lately.
