Farnsworth House is the ultimate modernist pavilion with its floor to ceiling glass and minimal structural framework. It was designed by Mies Van der Rohe and completed in 1951. It sits on a 55 acre site outside of Chicago and next to the Fox River. It was designed as a "get away" for the poet and physician Edith Farnsworth. Despite the buildings critical acclaim the structure proved impractical; constantly too hot or too cold, lacking in privacy and susceptible to flooding! We love the building and are very proud of our reproduction.
Address: 14520 River Rd, Plano, IL 60545, USA
