CAC Live: If the Walls of Farnsworth House Could Talk

« All Events

A brief encounter at a dinner party led to one of the most intriguing and beautiful design collaborations of the 20th century—and sparked a firestorm of society gossip. When Modernist architect Mies van der Rohe met accomplished physician and polymath Dr. Edith Farnsworth, the resulting house he designed for her was a structure so simple, so elegant, and in such defiance of conventional wisdom, that it revolutionized domestic architecture forever.

Host Bobbi Pinkert, a self-described “archiholic,” has been a CAC docent since 1999. She is currently Tour Director for five tours and leads many others, including the Chicago Architecture Foundation Center River Cruise aboard Chicago’s First Lady. A former President of the CAC Docent Council, Pinkert was named “Outstanding Docent” by her peers in 2010.
