Thread Name: Help: Little Boxes (Malvina Reynolds) ticky-tacky?
Subject: RE: Ticky-tacky
Reynolds was using the mass produced, homogenized look of the houses as a symbol of a mass produced, homogenized culture, rather than as an architectural critique. And it's innaresting that almost nobody in the past 40-odd years has had trouble with what ticky-tacky means.
