Hole Houses

One new idea for every day in 2011. We're talking big, small, local, international, in action and on the drawing board. Here's today's -- what's yours?

Robert Hutchison and Tom Maul aren't afraid to drill a few holes.

The Seattle-based architecture duo are well-known for their public building and private home remodel and design projects, but the two also gained recognition for a series of installation art pieces, created in Seattle farmhouses slated for demolition.

Hutchinson and Maul drilled holes into the façades of the old houses and invited the public in to see the effect of natural light and basic architectural elements. The two write that their installation pieces aim to "celebrate the history and past use of existing buildings, while highlighting their architectural qualities and potential for reuse."

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
