A short documentary about
The Conceivable House.

< Back

The concept departs from a novel by Dutch writer Willem Frederik Hermans (1921-1995) entitled The God Conceivable, Conceivable the God. In this labyrinthine literary construction, fragmented texts are not bound by a logical narrative but by word play and allusions, which are scattered like strings throughout the book. Inspired by this narrative construction – a story without a predetermined destination – Deprez designed an interior using a similar strategy.
