Farnsworth House

Italiano. Informazioni tratte da Wikipedia. A me interessa mostrarvi queste opere d’arte, non le voglio analizzare.

La Casa Farnsworth è uno dei più celebri progetti dell’architetto Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. Progettata e costruita, tra il 1945 ed il 1951, come casa per i weekend, con al centro il blocco dei servizi. È collocata in un contesto un tempo rurale, a 80 chilometri a ovest-sud-ovest di Chicago, nei pressi del fiume Fox, a sud della cittadina di Plano. La casa in vetro ed acciaio fu commissionata dalla dr.ssa Edith Farnsworth, che desiderava un luogo dove poter godere della natura e dedicarsi ai suoi hobby. Mies creò una casa di 140 m² che è divenuta uno dei simboli del movimento moderno. L’edificio è stato designato come National Historic Landmark nel 2006. Nel mese di settembre del 2008 la casa fu allagata dalle piogge, per lo sfacelo provocato dall’Uragano Ike. L’acqua che ha raggiunto il livello di 1,5 m dal suolo ha sommerso il pavimento di quasi mezzo metro. Molti mobili si sono salvati per galleggiamento. La casa è stata chiusa alle visite pubbliche per restauri per tutto il 2008 ed ha riaperto nella primavera del 2009.

The Farnsworth House was designed and constructed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe between 1945-51. It is a one-room weekend retreat in a once-rural setting, located 55 miles (89 km) southwest of Chicago’s downtown on a 60-acre (24 ha) estate site, adjoining the Fox River, south of the city of Plano, Illinois. The steel and glass house was commissioned by Dr. Edith Farnsworth, a prominent Chicago nephrologist, as a place where she could engage in her hobbies: playing the violin, translating poetry, and enjoying nature. Mies created a 1,500-square-foot (140 m2) house that is widely recognized as an iconic masterpiece of International Style of architecture. The home was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2006, after joining the National Register of Historic Places in 2004. The house is currently owned and operated as a house museum by the historic preservation group, National Trust for Historic Preservation.

In September 2008, the house was flooded by rains from the remnants of Hurricane Ike, Water levels reached about 18 inches (46 cm) above the floor and the 5 foot (1.5 m) stilts upon which the house rests. Much of the furniture was saved by elevating it above the flood waters. The house was closed to the public for the remainder of 2008 for repairs and reopened for public visitation in spring 2009.

La Farnsworth House, conçue et réalisée par Ludwig Mies van der Rohe entre 1946 et 1951+, est une maison de week-end d’une seule pièce dans un site autrefois rural, située à environ 75 km au sud-est de Chicago, dans un domaine de 24 ha bordant la rivière Fox, au sud de Plano dans l’Illinois. La maison en verre et acier fut commandée par le Dr Edith Farnsworth, une importante spécialiste du rein installée à Chicago. Ce devait être un endroit où elle pourrait profiter de la nature et s’adonner à ses passions: le violon, la traduction de poésies et la nature. Mies créa pour elle une maison de 135 m2 qui est largement considérée comme un emblème de l’Architecture moderne. La maison a été reconnue National Historic Landmark (monument national historique) en 2006, après avoir rejoint le National Register of Historic Places (registre national des sites historiques) en 2004.
