Brutalist Camp



I was recently thinking about the caryatids from the Erecthyon, and how they have had a much smaller influence upon architecture as their ordered neighbours, when I came across this; an if only if ever there never was one.

yes of course, but 5 storey naked male caryatids, leaning in at a ridiculous angle are a little more bizarre than copies, fun though they are.
I do love the way that the Erecthyon breaks every rule in the classicists book, though.

This looks demountable - could be folded away and taken on an epic, well attended picnic.

Never sure about caryatids - something unfair about the arrangement.
