Shai-Hulud… is what I associate this image with… love the striking and somewhat nostalgic contrast between the faded houses and a giant silver ‘worm’. The house stands out but also blends into the picture – comfortably surreal.

House Twisted by Alphaville was built on a narrow and irregular plot of land surrounded by tradesman’s houses. Like W-Window House, the house is steel frame construction and sheet metal cladding. This one ‘maneuvers’ horizontally while the other one rises vertically – same materials, different approaches.
