Labyrinthine and feverish

These are words applied to the politics of Austin’s real estate market and anti-McMansion provisions. Metropolis magazine is on the newsstands now (see page 64, “Hot Property,” byline Peter Hall; contents of March issue not yet on line). The architect-owner is reported to have applied to demolish a circa-1930 bungalow to make way for the International-style dwelling that was eventually constructed. This one-page article quotes Burton Baldridge, the architect of the house depicted, plus another Austin architect in private practice, J. C. Schmeil, and Ulrich Dangel, a member of the UT faculty currently redesigning his own house. Some before-and-after pix would have been informative.
