A Sad Day.

Between Lehman Brothers filing bankruptcy and the damage in Galveston, Texas caused by Hurricane Ike, watching the news this morning was anything but easy. Unfortunately, one of the design world's most iconic houses was also affected by hurricane Ike. Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's famous modern masterpiece, the Farnsworth House, fell prey to Mother Nature Sunday, September 14, as flood waters rose almost two feet over the top deck, entering the house. Built within the flood plain of the Fox River in Plano, Illinois, the house stands on columns five feet above ground which proved not high enough as record breaking rain amounts brought the river more than 14 feet above its normal level. More than eight inches of rain fell in two days as Tropical Storm Lowell passed through Saturday, immediately followed by the remnants of Hurricane Ike Saturday night and Sunday. Fox River waters rose quickly and by Sunday morning, September 14, they had breached the interior of the house by over a foot. Click here to make a donation.
