Mini Mies: Dad Builds A Farnsworth Dollhouse


exterior 1, originally uploaded by j&mgorman.

Josh's' son Camden is almost two and getting into the make-believe, so he did what any dad would do: he took some walnut and Lexan and built him a Playmobil-scale model of Mies van der Rohe's Farnsworth House.

Next, he'll flood it and close it for the rest of the year, while Camden does make-believe insurance adjustments and repairs.
