Side by Side | Farnsworth House + The Philip Johnson Glass House
September 13, 2020 – December 20, 2020
This exhibition by photographer Robin Hill explores the similarities and differences between two of America’s most iconic houses: the Farnsworth House by Mies van der Rohe and the Glass House by Philip Johnson. Through a series of diptychs, Mr. Hill’s lens explores both the geometry of the structures and their place in the environment. The exhibition will include biographical profiles and correspondence between Mies, Philip and Edith – as well as a scale model of the Farnsworth House and Glass House as an interconnected structure, made by Mies’s grandson, noted Chicago architect Dirk Lohan.
