Update, based on your comments: While perusing Dorothea Lange's photographs, I came upon this image. The simplicity and honesty, and the form, reminded me of Mies' Farnsworth House. The "porch" did too. That this is raised above the land for these farmworkers struck me. The simple stairs of horizontal slats sealed the connection, for me.

Thanks for your comments. I may not have found the best title for this comparison. What would you title it? Thanks, Edward
