Parkie Pic of the Week

For those of you who live outside the area, University Park and Highland Park are together called Park Cities. Citizens of these fabled towns are called "Parkies". Hence, my weekly fun feature which I call "Parkie Pic of the Week" in which I like to highlight an unusual or spectacular feature of my neighborhood.

I thought this was an interesting house. It's lines are very severe and there's no landscaping to warm it up. It looks like a contemporary church building.

I think I would like it more if it didn't have that triangle thing on the front right. It sort of doesn't go with the other more angular lines and serves no architectural purpose that I can see.

It's different. And for that alone, they get credit.
