Nothing inspires flight from pudgy barnyard fowl like a coop based on Saarinen's TWA Terminal at JFK International--there's even one perched on top! Never has cast-in place concrete soared like this, and just think how sturdy this structure will be during a hailstorm. There's no limit on how many eggs you can have, my feathered ladies; just make sure they can be safely stowed all the way under the nest in front of you. Miss Kitty will be coming through the cabin to take your seed orders shortly!
Sadly, this are all the MMM sketches I have so far. I was going to make some more today, but I awoke with a wicked, stomach-churning hangover (haven't had one of those in years) after Guy and I went to dinner with one of the contractors I worked with on Wheatlands and her husband last night. So, I'm finally feeling decent enough to sit up at a computer and do this post, but I'm low on ideas for the next MMM starchitects coop sketches. I mean, it's so easy to just go "Frank Lloyd Wright" and be done, but come on, thou literate and thoughtful readers. What other kinds of coops do you want to see? What other styles? What other starchitects shall we skewer/honor/patronize? Tell us in the comments!
