1979-1982, 1987, predominant 1980
File documents a project in which Cedric Price was invited to submit a design for a single house to an exhibition entitled "Architecture II: Houses for Sale" organized by the Leo Castelli Gallery, New York City, New York, United States. The four components of Price's submission entitled "Platforms, Pavilions, Pylons and Plants" could be regrouped and redistributed on the one-acre site if and when required. Conceptual, design development and schematic sketches include preliminary plans, sections, and elevations for the house as well as details for the arrangement of the four components. Trees are stamped in black ink on the site plans with a generic rubber "tree" stamp. Design development drawings include preliminary drawings for layouts done in graphite, and a complete sequence of design development drawings done in ink numbered 001 to 013. Several reprographic copies of design development drawings were coloured with adhesive film and pencil and annotated in order to develop preliminary versions for the final presentation drawings. Three panels for the "Houses for Sale" exhibition consist of text describing the project concept mounted on boards, and a photomechanical print enlarged from an original sketch perspective entitled "general view-pavilions and totems". Material in this file was produced between 1979 and 1982, and in 1987, but predominantly in 1980.
File contains conceptual drawings, design development drawings, presentation panels, a presentation model, photographic materials, and textual records.
Materials in this series were kept in the original order in which they were received.
