AUDITORIUM

MEMBERS PAY HALF PRICE!



Today's home is an expression of our contemporary lives, the nexus of our lifestyle aspirations, social ambitions, and real-world frustrations, and our search for the ideal continues. How do houses shape us and how do we shape our homes? In what ways are our notions of home informed by the media? Where is real innovation in housing design taking place? Will new domestic technologies make our lives more comfortable or more controlling?

The Home Show raises provocative questions addressing the ideas and ideals of today's house and home. The opening-day panel brings together leading historians, architects, curators, and critics to discuss the shifting nature of design and domestic life. Participants will be Alice T. Friedman, Professor of Art and Director of the Architecture Program at Wellesley College; Karrie Jacobs, design critic and editor-in-chief of Dwell; Terence Riley, Curator of The Un-Private House and Chief Curator of Architecture and Design at The Museum of Modern Art, New York; and Joel Sanders, architect. The discussion will be moderated by Thomas Fisher, Dean of the College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture at the University of Minnesota.
