Post 828: 98/365
I’m so excited to be able to post these photos thanks to my brand new slide scanner my husband gave me for my birthday (over a month ago) that I finally got around to giving a test run. They aren’t great quality, but they still do the job of making my slides digitally shareable.
During my final two years of college, and continuing for a few years after I graduated, I had a habit of taking slides instead of photos – almost 1,000 images (including over 600 slides from my semester in Rome) that can only be viewed through a slide projector.
But I digress, since this post is not about Rome, or Italy, or college, but about a house, and about my excitement at finally being able to share them online.
In 1994, I visited Peter Eisenman’s House III in Lakeville, CT. The house was designed for Robert Miller, the father of a friend of my brother, who was also a friend of mine by default. His parents were deceased and he and his 4 brothers were trying to figure out what to do with the house, which had not been occupied for almost 15 years.
The house was one of a series of homes designed in the early 1970s by a well-known architect named Peter Eisenman, known as his “Ten Houses.”
I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to visit it before it was torn down.
