Huntsville visionary builder Dan Phillips‘ funkadelic fantasy houses have altered the fringes of Hunstsville for a decade, now they’re altering the front page of the New York Times Home section. Phillips and his company, Phoenix Commotion, fuse low-cost labor with masses of recycled odds and ends to create buildings embroidered with amazing textures just outside the city limits, then with quixotic optimism sell them to low income residents who, predictably, re-sell them to art-smart gentrifiers. But what the hell, they’re crazy cool!
