If Zaha Hadidâ€™s â€˜Capital Hill,â€™
created for Naomi Campbell and commissioned by Russian billionaire, Vladislav Doronin, is the Mothership then Bercy Chen Studioâ€™s â€˜Edgeland House,â€™ overlooking the Colorado River is, at the very least, a Puddle Jumper. Though the size of the Edgeland House project is meager compared to Hadidâ€™s monster (or monstrosity as opinion dictates), they share an investment, not only in futuristic aesthetics, but eco-centric design. Edgelandâ€™s commitment to both its immediate environment and the planet is founded in ancient architectural ideology. Edgeland is a beautiful and highly sophisticated reconstruction of a Native American Pit-house.
