Thauberger concentrates on the emblematic nature of these facades, exceptional for their cripness and cleaness silhouette against the clarity of the prairie sky. He is more interested in the freedom of painterly expression obtained by the adoption of a standardized unit or frame of reference such as the false fronts of prairie buildings.
