Iconic Houses

In an earlier draft of this comic, it appeared the Farnsworth house was being gnawed by ordinary beavers. My architect brother informed me that Mies van der Rohe was known for his innovations in steel and glass, not wood. So just to clarify: those are MUTANT beavers. 

By popular demand, you can order a poster of this comic here. If you'd like, I'll include a footnote about the beavers.

Check out some past Incidental Comics about architecture:
The New Building. The World-Famous Architect


  1. Love it. Thanks for the clarification about the beavers!

  2. This is a quite hilarious comics because it seems realistic. Modern new construction these days that involves more steel and glass materials are very impressive. I hope I could have a glass house too.
