Inside Out Architecture
July 29–August 2, 2019

Week 4 Theme: Buildings can transform! Buildings can reveal! Structures morph as the needs of people or animals change concealing buried layers of history. What is the truth within beams, bricks, and mortar? Let’s use architectural sleuthing skills to solve some mysteries.

Inspired by the Museum building, which began one hundred and thirty-seven years ago as the summer home of Julian and Lizzie de Cordova. Stealthy exploration will reveal its transformation from cottage to castle to art museum. What alternate worlds might be discovered inside Jarrett Mellenbruch’s lofted Haven sculpture in the Park that looks like a neoclassical home for tiny humans, but is in fact an attraction for honeybees.

Week 4 Project: Engineer monumental structures that reveal their dynamic histories. Elements from each phase remain with renewed purpose. To find the truth of who lives in the buildings and how they are used, families and friends must pay close attention to the layered details.
