The House Project (1974-2007) is originally a sculpture installed in the open air by Hreinn Fridfinnsson. Once he read about an aristocratic character in an Icelandic novel who decided to build his house inside-out, with wallpaper, curtains and framed photos as its façade, to turn the outside as indoors. And the other way around. Hreinn Fridfinnsson honoured this idea of erecting such a house again in the middle of nowhere in the high lands of Iceland in 1974.
