In present day, we seem to define identity in terms of city through iconographic, egotistical architectural form. In creating an image for Everyville, we sought to define identity through anonymity as an experiment in community interaction. Rather than looking at architecture as a formal study of space, we implemented architecture as a series of rules and guidelines that allow for community response and growth.

In establishing a character of anonymity, we formally utilized the pristine white box as a response to the overt formalism that is sweeping the current architectural world. By implementing utopian ideals of equal space allocation for all residents and giving the form identity through undefined character, the individual buildings begin to represent a monument of, by and for the people, not the architect. As the necessities of the community evolve and spaces begin to multiply the idea of monument begins to disintegrate ultimately resulting in the "anti-monument".
