Smooth v. Smash. Round 1.

Contradicting the smash that I love to see in my personal style, is a calm and smooth line that I love to see in architectural and interior design. Farmsworth House exemplifies everything I feel is right in modern architecture. No surprises that this is a Mies van der Rohe’s work = you can see it in the radical departure from the fundamental European design styles that clogged and filled the psyche of the time.

Clearly transparent, pulling in but radiating out the exterior environment, the house includes continuous glass walls that are never broken by the joins tethering these to the floating decks surrounding the property. Incredibly elegant, the building is quietly refined. A serenity that whispers cool, calm, dark secrets yet ultimate open vault.
