Black and white photos of this house I saw before the age of ten have inspired my lifelong love of moden architecture and interior design. Thanks for sharing the story behind this iconic home.

The Chicago Architecture Foundation offers a fabulous day long tour of the apartment complex on Lake Shore Drive and the Farnsworth House. Seeing it in person was an amazing experience. I salute the Foundation. We joined so that when we visited Chicago, we could (and did) take advantage of their incredible tours which I highly recommend to anyone who loves architecture and visiting the city.
