From The Onion-Stoner Architect Drafts All-Foyer Mansion

Ahh stoner architects, that would explain a lot of the screwed up jobs I’ve seen….here’s a humorous piece from the Onion, those goof balls who spoof on everyone and everything…

MINNEAPOLIS–In the oft-overlooked field of stoner architecture, new talent often goes unnoticed. But that hasn’t been the case for Minneapolis stoner architect Richard “Dick” Donovan, whose groundbreaking design for an all-foyer mansion is earning slack-jawed admiration from some of the most respected members of the Twin Cities stoner-architecture community.

Donovan had won moderate recognition for past work, including his subterranean ranch house and his roofless A-frame. The 27-year-old’s latest design, however, has won him unprecedented acclaim, hailed in the August issue of Stoner Architectural Digest as “the most absolutely fucked-up shit to come along in years.”
“I was sitting around, bullshitting with [longtime roommate and noted carburetor-parts lamp designer Mike] Mosedale one afternoon, trying to decide if we should hang the 1968 All-American Calendar–the hilarious one with Nixon on it–by the ping-pong table or in the foyer or what,” Donovan said. “Then we got to talking about foyers, and how they’re kind of weird, ’cause you don’t ever actually do anything in them except, you know, use them to walk into the next room. Then, all of a sudden, I was like, ‘Whoa. Imagine if, after the foyer, there was just a whole endless series of foyers.’ Christ, what a mindfuck that’d be.”
