INsite | Farnsworth House

Show Info

Luftwerk casts INsite, as “an exploration of the philosophy of Mies through light.” INsite transformed Mies Van de Rohe’s historic Farnsworth House into a revelatory canvas of light and sound, resulting in a reanimation of our understanding and appreciation of this iconic structure. Visitors were invited to see the site in a unique setting after sunset and experience the exhibit from both the exterior and interior of the house.
