Gue(ho)st house by Berdaguer & Péjus

From a ghost town to this: a Gue(ho)st house. The difference is that here we have a building that hasn’t been abandoned  but has served a variety of functions: it’s been a prison, a school and even a funeral home. Now, the building, located in eastern France, is a gallery and visitors space that has been given a polystyrene makeover by artists Berdaguer and Péjus. The eeire and blobby addition to the building spills from the facades of the building onto the ground and only slightly resembles the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters. The pair of artists also has a series of models named Pyschoarchitecture and another project, Architecture Fantome.
