NEW EXHIBIT All Their Own: Designing for Themselves and Each Other

As sites, designers’ own home projects teach us about the history of architecture and landscape architecture, communicate the nature of their work, and reveal something about themselves.

Although a designer’s first projects are often for family members, they inevitably will design a place of their own during the course of their career. These include gardens, residences, vacation homes, remodels, and design-build projects. Designers also design for each other. This exhibition showcases projects by architects and landscape architects for themselves and for their colleagues.

The exhibit includes highlights from the Environmental Design Archives /Visual Resources Center and Environmental Design Library collections, such as original sketches, photographs, ephemera, and books.

Opening Event:

A presentation by Tom Buresh, Professor and Chair of Architecture and Danelle Guthrie Visiting Assoc. Prof. in Architecture, Principals at Guthrie + Buresh Architects share their experiences designing and building their own home.
