Visiting the Farnsworth House

The summer studio visited the Farnsworth house and the Lumen house. We can build our building for 1-5% of what the Lumen house cost. We all had alot of fun seeing the site, and the house. Below is a picture of the summer team on the steps of the Farnsworth house.
We also wrote a mission statement for our project:
Linking the visitor center and the Farnsworth house, this structure is built to showcase Mies's wardrobe in an exhibition space with a clear, strategic approach.
