This image is part of a series which explore the coding of space. The Fat slogan 'Taste not Space' argues that taste is the point where architecture engages with issues of class, value and hence is the moment that architecture becomes politicised. From this vantage, Taste, an issue often dismissed by high architecture as being trivial, becomes the radical issue. Far more radical than the spatial gymnastics favored by the mainstream architectural avant guard. And of course, far more engaging to a wider culture beyond the architectural academy. In this image, the recoding of a very everyday home with an alien pattern serves to illustrate the potential of surface decoration - in oppostition to truth to materials or construction as favoured by Moderist hedgemony.
