Cows, Architecture, and the Meaning of Life

Dank Gehry


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...

Did your client not like the samples you provided?

Do you stay up at night,

Well, rest assured!

Cows are the great equalizer.

Whether your name is Tex,

You can always propose cowhide as an appropriate finish material.

Wouldn't you know?

It even worked for the Crow.

The Le Corbusier, that's pony hide.

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.

You're late to the game - Art Deco and Streamline Moderne milk parlors are a recognized historical type in Ontario, California.

This is still in DD, but because of the orientation and wind pressure on this cow we might have to use 10" metal studs spaced at 4" center to center. 

The client wants to VE one of the stomachs (which might serve a second function as a mass damper) but that's a story for another day.

Should the utters not sway in the direction of the wind tho? Seems like an error and would add less drag to the system.

In all the joking going on here, I'm genuinely in the middle of a research project exploring the distributed agency of cows in the landscape.

I think that cow wind load diagram  is from the twitter account Science Diagrams That Look Like Shitposts, yes?
