spiritwandering asked: What is your favorite Dow design?
Definitely the Stein house in Midland, Michigan. The interior of the building is amazing (partially due to the interior design prowess of the current owners), and it is actually a design that Alden B. Dow worked on with Frank Lloyd Wright when he stayed with him for a short time, so there are more Wrightian influences in this building than some others by Dow during that time period. However, I really like all of his designs.. this one just stands out to me. Thanks for the question!
Architecture Camp 2013 is going so well!! Yesterday, the campers went on a scavenger hunt through the Alden B. Dow Home and Studio, explored other ABD buildings, and had a lesson on sustainability by Melissa Wahl from Cobblestone Homes.
Camp will continue with fun activities such as constructing origami mobiles, photography lessons, creating outdoor rooms, working with Google Sketchup, canoeing on the pond that surrounds the building, and of course, designing and building their own model home or business!
Photos to come!!
