This model represents an inversion of Paul Nelson’s Suspended House: its evil twin. Instead of the open plan made possible by a steel frame supporting hanging walls, the frame here is suspended by the walls, fixing the plan. The steel frame becomes something like a cage.
Precedent: Paul Nelson's Suspended House
This house's open structural steel enclosure was the culmination of the modernist free plan. Rooms were suspended from the steel frame and connected by ramps.
