Kitsch in the countryside

Grayson Perry is an artist of pretty unusual taste. He let his creativity run riot when designing this house in Essex, England

Last resort Essex
@ Jack Hobhouse

Disney meets Dalí – that’s how the BBC described A House for Essex. Ceramic artist Grayson Perry and the FAT team of architects designed this bizarre building in its pretty English country setting for the Living Architecture project as a gallery and holiday home for up to four people. To the Turner Prize winner, art is not art without lashings of trash. The house has become quite a crowd puller, so anyone wishing to spend a night there is advised to inquire well in advance
