The “Prairie Chicken House” designed by architect Herb Greene in late 1950’s and built in 1961 in Oklohoma, USA. It looks like Frank Gehry met with Zaha Hadid in the prairie. What’s interesting about it is that it drew attention when famous photographer Julius Shulman photographed it to be published in LIFE magazine. Hadn’t Shulman found and photographed the house, maybe it would have been left unnoticed and unmaintained to be lost forever.  Here is a short video about the project and a talk with Herb Greene.
