Paris based architects Planda have designed a house in the shape of a cross, inspired by dj duo Justice's most recent album cover.

The house was commissioned to for a cliff-top site on Santa Catalina Island in California, America, with the longest part of the cross cantilevered to jut out over the sea.

  • Hilarious... had to check the date to see if it was April already. "A cross inspired by Justice's most recent album cover" you say?. R-r-r-r-right. Unfortunately, I don't think Justice can quite claim the intellectual property rights for the crucifix form - I think those belong to some beady, sandal wearing geezer - I think he was from Nazareth, can't place his name at the mo. Initially, I thought this was just a prank, a quick video done in 17 minutes by some post-post-ironic Paris archi students looking to distract themselves before a crit. I'm still not sure if the joke is on me, or the clients here - in which case they should offer to pay the fees in gold, frankincense and merh. Justice are quite entertaining and good for pop, and I can't help but think that this Paris practise are a bit star-struck and trying to hang on to their coat-tails a bit with this one. Let's just hope the joiners don't drive their nails too far through the roof when they come to build this thing.

  • this is lovely. using the front cover of the justice album is just as good as using a 'shard of glass' as a metaphor and probably has more cultural poignancy. I would have used sketch-up though.
