Projecting Modern | Robie House

Show Info

Deemed as the first modern home, the Robie House by Frank Lloyd Wright is an important architectural masterpiece. The modern home was a masterpiece of the Prairie style and charted new paths for modern architecture. This piece marks, Luftwerk’s first collaboration with architecture. For Projecting Modern, they developed a site-specific installation by reflecting and the linear and spatial qualities of the home to extract ideals of modernism embedded within the design of the Robie House. This interior installation included four projected videos in which the duo added their own interpretive layer onto this iconic structure.
