Architecture for Sale

Psst, buddy- wanna buy some architecture? Want to buy the Sculptured House from Woody Allen's Sleeper? You're in luck, because it's on the market (for around $5 million). It's fascinating to peruse the listings on Architecture for Sale, and see the interiors (along with their owners' frequently unfortunate choices of furniture). I'm a sucker for the wrap-around ranches. But looking at all the ambitious structures one after another, there becomes apparent a fine line between enduring innovations with a design for living vs. pretentious expanses that would better serve as public civic centers.
