Cows, Architecture, and the Meaning of Life


With the closing of the FLW school it is clear that the development of new architectural curricula is paramount for a new era. But there is no reason to fear for if we study the relationship of cows and architecture through history we can learn much about the meaning of life and thereby be more effective architects. Furthermoor, by enrolling in this course you will become a better architect by considering cows when you design, henceforth unconsciously and involuntarily. Remember, if you can design for a cow, you can design for a human.

I've been trying to think of a good name for our farm/homestead, which is out in the countryside. "Furthermoor" is now a contender...

You can always propose cowhide as an appropriate finish material.

This is timely, in light of Rem’s proposed colonization of the Countryside. A school to specifically study how best to exploit that mystery territory outside the cities could really give his ideas legs. A new Tailiesen could really focus a new generation on ways to milk the engorged realm of criminally underexploited (and federally subsidized) farms.

I’m so ready for lab-grown meat to replace eating actual animals! We’ll be designing cow-itecture to house cows that are just living a chill life knowing they won’t be slaughtered! Granted there will be far fewer of them.

does that mean more revisions to the building codes to allow for bovine occupants?


We already have to accommodate full-size moo-bility scooters, and those things carry quite the payload.
