|Time||SAH in Paris: Modernist Masterworks
Vist the Maison de Verre, Maison Louis Carre, and the Villa Savoye
Travel to Paris on July 11-12 with the Society of Architectural Historians for a unique opportunity to experience three Modernist masterworks—the Maison de Verre, the Villa Savoye, and the Maison Louis Carré—like never before.
You'll gain exclusive access to the iconic Maison de Verre, a private residence known for its inaccessibility. The lucky few who have visited the house only had a small glimpse of what you'll experience with SAH.
After visits to Villa Savoye and the Maison Louis Carré, you'll arrive at the Maison de Verre to enjoy a light supper in the dining room generously hosted by owner and former SAH board member Robert Rubin. Imagine sitting at the dinner table, sipping French wine, talking about the amazing architecture you've seen, as the afternoon light filters through the glass-block walls.
Your adventure continues the next morning, as you return to the Maison de Verre for a second time to experience the house in a different light. Robert and curator Mary Vaughan Johnson will share the details of their conservation efforts with you, and you'll be able to ask the questions you've always wanted to ask while getting a firsthand look into the story of this incomparable house. To top it all off, you'll have the pleasure of enjoying lunch and more wine in the garden—a place seldom seen by visitors.
This two-day event is being held to benefit SAH Archipedia, the Society's online encyclopedia of American architecture. Your donation will go toward the $150,000 that must be raised to secure the entire $450,000 granted by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) in 2013.
This once-in-a-lifetime architectural experience is limited to 25 people, and there are only a few spaces left. RSVP before May 15 by calling 312-573-1365. Tickets are $2,500 of which $2,000 is tax deductible.
Questions? Please contact SAH at 312-573-1365 or email Jane Reilly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
