Julie Kachniasz, "Farnsworth House + Landscape: A Curated Environment." Evolution and adaptation. Pathways composed of stones concentrated at weirs and along view corridors and then spread out, as path markers. As the soil gradually erodes, more of each stone will appear, marking the flows. Pathways mark long views to the house. Weirs control the flow of water through the site and serve as bridges for visitors. Weirs at the north end of the site are perforated to allow water flow at certain depths, without submerging the pathways. Plant material from landscape maintenance is bundled together to stabilize stream banks and limit erosion. A new visitors’ center acts as a counterbalance to the house. Instead of floating above the earth, it is embedded in the landscape. 1 of 2.
Julie Kachniasz, "Farnsworth House + Landscape: A Curated Environment." Process and cultivation. A new topography makes visible the forces acting on the site and creates a more dynamic visitor experience. Depressions of varying widths and depths collect water, marking the site’s floods and creating new plant and animal communities. 2 of 2.
