Sleeping at Farnsworth

There is much to say about Mies van der Rohe. So I’ll leave it to Robert Hughes.

The image below links to the eloquent Hughes talking about one of my favourite houses, the Farnsworth House (1945-51).

The montage of Robert and architect junky Lord Peter Palumbo gossiping while drinking scotch with a couple of dogs at their feet is priceless. It’s great to have these moments captured.
