(*****)back in the news


    [Farnsworth House, Plano, Illinois]

  • float lightly
    "Even the client, a Chicago doctor named Edith Farnsworth, had trouble feeling at home in the Plano, Ill., country house -- she complained that her 'anti-house' was expensive to heat and difficult to cool, and guests felt chipmiunks were watching them.

    (She may've been nursing a broken heart, too, or at least a bruised ego, from a liaison with her architect.)" (Cathleen McGuigan, nwk_01.06.25)

  • perennial chic
    "The place prompted an attack on Mies from the powerful editor of House Beautiful, Elizabeth Gordon, who called his architecture 'cold' and 'barren.'" (Cathleen McGuigan, nwk_01.06.25)
  • scorched-earth agenda
    "'I have a kind of helpless love of almost everything Mies did,' says the edgy Dutch designer Rem Koolhaas." (Cathleen McGuigan, nwk_01.06.25)
  • robotic renderings
    "... a heart-stoppingly beautiful white steel-framed pavilion raised above the flood level of an adjacent river, a house declared unlivable by its owner ..." (Ada Louise Huxtable, wsj_01.07.25)


[Tugendhat House, Brno, Czechoslovakia]
  • laconic commentary
    "A visit to the Tugendhat house was my personal Mies epiphany." (Ada Louise Huxtable, wsj_01.07.25)

[Synderman House, near Fort Wayne, Indiana]
  • a little compassion
    "Graves was not informed when the Syndermans sold to a developer. 'It was a big surprise,' Graves says. 'I don't have any projects that I want to see destroyed.'" (John E Czarnecki, arec_00.10)

  • Eleventh Commission, Inc
    "Kelty would also undertake a major rehabilitation project. The roof has leaked for years, and ... Nancy Synderman had a circular steel staircase removed." (John E Czarnecki, arec_00.10)
