Concerning the Bodyguard

by Donald Barthelme
Project by Olivia Tun
Partnered with Stephanie Jones

“The unconventional choices in “Concerning the Bodyguard”, a short story by Donald Barthelme almost completely composed of questions, should translate architecturally. The model should be complicated subterraneanly, and even somewhat strange. The reader might ask: does the story hold up? Similarly, a viewer should ask: would this building actually hold up?”
