The Unabomber's cabin
According to Wikipedia Ted Kaczynski, aka the Unabomber, built his own cabin in remote Montana, and I have to say: what a total failure of imagination. You would expect that a child prodigy in math would come up with a creative way of solving some obscure problem in geodesic dome design to underscore energy effiency and sustainability. Instead kaczynski constructed the dullest cabin ever: a stereotypical middle-class free-standing family house in mini-format based on the Walden template. Where is the garden gnome Ted? What strikes me the most is that it doens't seem that he has used locally sourced wood, in fact his cabin seems to been made from materials bought at the hardware store. This tells us that his body may have have been in the woods but that this mind was still in the city. The cabin was exhibited in 2008
