Crappy caught up with starchitect Frank Lloyd Crap at one of his earliest projects, located at 1918 Harman Street in Ridgewood. "This was created during my minimalist phase," he explained. "This was designed for the homeowner who wants little to no yard care. As you can see, I created planters, but they decided not to plant anything in them. However, they craftily used them to prevent their garbage cans from being blown all over the place, and with the weather we've had lately, that accidental benefit came in handy."
Now to the design of the house. "Communism inspired the color and the design to some extent," Mr. Crap explained.
"And you know how people 'disappeared' in Communist Russia? Well, this house doesn't even exist as per the DOB. They have the lot listed as 'vacant land' even though there clearly has always been a building here," he said. The new owner wanted that 'please-don't-rob-me' look, so I created something that no one would believe that people live in."
