The 1995 Los Angeles Riots triggered the a realization that " A House is Not a Home". One's defenses are those at present by evolution or habitat. Our home became our protective shell, our defense from the outside chaos. With no police or firemen. Would we eventually develop the exterior skeleton needed as protection against our riots and wars? The frames are designed to be a geometric carapace/ the cutaway roof of a house looking in.
