Exhibition | Country House, City House

Posted in exhibitions by Editor on December 10, 2014

In a posting on the preservation strategy for Menokin a few days ago, I failed to note the related exhibition now on view in DC. Thanks to Pierre-Henri Biger for pointing it out! CH

From the website Menokin: Rubble with a Cause:

Country House, City House
The Octagon House, Washington, D.C., 6 November 2014 — April 2015

first-floor-bannerMenokin and The Octagon House are linked across the centuries through historic events, a family, and a love of architecture. Step inside their history and be immersed in the revolutionary plans for their future in the Country House, City House exhibition. The AIA Foundation (which operates The Octagon House) and The Menokin Foundation share a common mission: to encourage and educate the public and the architecture profession about the preservation of great design of the past, and the creation of great design for the future. That mission is made tangible through this
collaborative exhibition. It is comprised of three parts:

Menokin: Re-imagining A Ruin
A visual overview of the history, rehabilitation and future of Menokin.

Through Their Eyes: A Photographic Journey
Take an artistic journey through the camera lenses of two photographers—Frances Benjamin Johnston and Hullihen Williams Moore. This collection spans over eight decades of Menokin’s history, as well as the changes in technique and the advancements in photo-technology from 1930 to 2014.

Menokin Revealed
This exhibition is a curated collection of the imaginations and visions of the students of architect, Jorge Silvetti, from his 2013 studio course at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
