Watch The Simpsons Tackle Dwell, 'Neutra' Architecture

New, 4 comments

Last night on The Simpsons, hipsters swarmed Springfield, taking over Moe's Tavern, turning tire fires into farmers markets, and transforming the pathetic little town into one anointed by the New York Times as "America's Coolest City." Homer and Marge got some new neighbors in the form of Terrence and Emily (voiced by Portlandia's Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein), Portland, Ore., transplants "doing the whole urban nomad thing, you know, just looking for an undiscovered city with affordable houses." Bakers of artisanal doughnuts by day, the couple was positively blown away by one for-sale property on the Simpsons' block of Evergreen Terrace: "What a find! Underneath all the ugly renovations this house has Neutra bones." With low-slung furnishings and a brick fireplace, the place particularly struck a chord with Emily's "graduate degree in midcentury kitsch" and, naturally, ended up being photographed for Dwell. Watch below.
