ROCKLAND — Farnsworth Art Museum Assistant Curator Jane Bianco, along with Wiebke and Steven Theodore of Theodore + Theodore Architects, will lead visitors through the exhibition “The Homestead Project” on Friday, Nov. 16, at 2 p.m. The exhibition is currently on extended view through Dec. 9. This tour, which is free with museum admission, will meet in the museum’s main lobby.
The design of an urban contemporary house is the underlying concept behind the Homestead Project, on display in the Farnsworth’s Crosman Gallery. The ten architectural and architectural design firms participating have been asked to present their designs for a theoretical house on the same lot as the existing Homestead, one that would meet the needs of an imaginary twenty-first century Farnsworth family.
The participating architects & architectural designers include:
• Eric Allyn of Houses & Cottages, Rockland
• Alex Anmahian and Nick Winton of Anmahian Winton Architects, Cambridge, Massachusetts
• Christopher Campbell of Christopher Campbell Architecture, Portland
• Henry N. Cobb of Pei Cobb Freed & Partners, New York, New York
• Bruce Norelius of Bruce Norelius Studio of Los Angeles, Calif.
• Susan Rodriguez of Ennead Architects LLP, New York, New York
• Julio Salcedo of scalar Architecture, New York, New York
• Henry Smith-Miller and Laurie Hawkinson of Smith-Miller + Hawkinson Architects, LLP, New York, New York
• Steven Theodore and Wiebke Theodore of Theodore + Theodore Architects, Arrowsic
• John B. Tittmann of Albert, Righter & Tittmann Architects, Boston, Mass.
