Discussion Moore House Commentary

"Its forms admittedly derive from primitive huts and from Mayan or Hindu temples—to say nothing of the famous Trenton Bathhouses by Louis I. Kahn—and Moore makes it clear that he was thinking in broad and recollective terms when he made the design."

— Gerald Allen. Charles Moore. New York: Whitney Library of Design, 1980. p.24.

The Creator's Words

"The site was bought one day on impulse simply because it seems full of magic.... Years before, a bulldozer had cut a flat circular building site, which had since grown grassy and now seemed part of the natural setting, like those perfectly circular meadows that inspired medieval Chinese poets to mediate upon perfection."

— Charles Moore, Gerald Allen, Donlyn Lyndon. The Place of Houses. New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1974. p59.

One opportunity that was especially welcome was for the extensive application of layers of mythic recollection. Tall wooden columns from an old factory were used to ensure that something in this small structure would be grand."

— Moore, Allen, Lyndon. The Place of Houses. p60.
