Hey, happy Lincoln's birthday! Abe would have been 206 today, and the US Patent and Trademark Office took the chance to remind us of a strange and oft-forgotten fact: The United States' 16th president is the only one to ever hold a patent. And a very interesting patent, at that.
When you say "log cabin," I think of maple syrup or Abraham Lincoln chopping wood in Illinois. I don't think avant-garde French architecture. I love many French things, but this spin on a very old (American) theme ain't one of them.
