Then, MODERNISM has boxed-in an open plan for you this year. Experience the house, watch the video clip, then click “more” below.Visit Lumenhaus this spring at the Farnsworth House.
Virginia Tech’s International Solar Decathlon winner LUMENHAUS will be on display at the Farnsworth House from April 1 till July 31.
Lumenhaus is a prototype house model that optimizes energy conservation through responsive architecture.
Inspired by the glass pavilion-style Farnsworth House designed by Bauhaus architect Mies Van Der Rohe, the house features a flowing, open plan that connects occupants to each other within the house and to nature outside. And what better than to experience this modern pavilion on the same grounds where the Farnsworth House sits?
