Architect Mies van der Rohe built this weekend retreat for Dr. Edith Farnsworth near the Fox River in Plano, Illinois from 1945-51. The 1,500 square-foot glass house, elegantly elevated above the ground, encompasses views of the surrounding forest and is a modernist masterpiece. This card includes all pieces and instructions necessary to make a complete paper model at 1:400 scale, approx. 3" long. It is mailable, with space on the reverse for a stamp, address and a message. Each card also includes a short but informative description of the landmark the model represents. Instructions are included in the form of multi-lingual isometric diagrams.  Build Your Own Chicago and Build Your Own New York series are also available.
