A more transparent Farnsworth House

    Amazing. The Farnsworth House with all the furniture and the teak wardrobe at the east end removed. The wardrobe was taken away for restoration after the flood. We get a chance to see Miesian space flow in new ways.

    I think Mies didn't want that cabinetry there, his client Edith Farnsworth convinced him she needed it.

    Three more photographs here. And you'll find out how to visit the house, and/or help pay for restoration.
