Farnsworth House

Minimal furnishing and no unnecessary walls. Just a single space enclosed by glass walls raised a few feet from the ground. Farnsworth House was designed by influential architect Mies van der Rohe, and its completion in 1951 marked the culmination of his pursuit of an ideal modernist aesthetic. Distilled to its elements, Farnsworth House becomes one with its setting: the house faces the Fox River, and its simple white beams create a contrast to the surrounding trees and landscape. Today, Farnsworth House stands as a testament to modernist architecture. The general public can discover this unique building during visits and guided tours. Special events, such as weddings, can also be arranged.

Well worth the trip.

Visiting the Farnsworth House was a great experience. It's a true gem on the Fox River. The tour guide was very knowledgeable, the house is in a beautiful spot, and our time there was enjoyable.

Truly an architectural marvel! Photos do not do it justice, must be seen and felt (not literally, no touching!) to truly understand why this little home is so special. House has a very interesting history and our tour guide did great Job telling its story. Highly recommended!
