Peter Eisenman's House VI: A Daring Experiment in Architecture

House VI is one of the most famous and controversial works by American architect Peter Eisenman. Designed for Richard and Suzanne Frank in Cornwall, Connecticut, the house was completed in 1975 as a radical experiment in architectural theory and practice. The house challenges the conventional notions of form, function, structure and meaning in architecture, and invites the users to constantly question their relationship with the built environment.

The house was conceived as a three-dimensional representation of Eisenman's design process, which involved a series of transformations and manipulations of a grid system. The house consists of four main sections that intersect and overlap each other, creating a complex spatial configuration that defies logic and coherence. The house also reveals its structural elements, such as columns, beams and slabs, but some of them are purely decorative or disruptive, serving no practical purpose. For example, a column hangs over the dining table, dividing the space and obstructing the view; a glass slot cuts through the bedroom floor and wall, separating the beds; an upside-down staircase hangs from the ceiling, marking the axis of the house.

The house was designed to be difficult and uncomfortable to live in, forcing the users to adapt to its idiosyncrasies and to constantly be aware of its presence. Eisenman wanted to create a house that was not a passive shelter, but an active agent that challenged the users' expectations and habits. He also wanted to explore the relationship between language and architecture, and how meaning is constructed and communicated through signs and symbols. The house is thus a form of architectural critique, questioning the norms and conventions of modern architecture and proposing new possibilities for expression and interpretation.

House VI has been widely discussed and debated by critics, scholars and students of architecture, as well as by the general public. It has been praised as a masterpiece of deconstructivist architecture, a groundbreaking example of postmodernism, and a daring exploration of architectural theory. It has also been criticized as a self-indulgent exercise, a dysfunctional nightmare, and a disregard for human needs and comfort. The house has been featured in numerous publications, exhibitions and documentaries, and has become an icon of contemporary architecture.

The house is still owned by Suzanne Frank, who has maintained it with care and respect for Eisenman's vision. She has also written a book about her experience of living in House VI, titled Peter Eisenman's House VI: The Client's Response. The house is occasionally open to visitors by appointment.
