Looks like a fine model, by a professional architectural model maker in Verona, Italy. Says he's worked for Aldo Rossi, Mario Botta and others.  Here the scale is 1:100. Steel and glass become forex and plexiglass! This shows though, how the Farnsworth House is not merely an object, but needs the land, trees and sky.  I'd that here it looks like a set for Waiting for Godot but even that requires a tree, per the author's wishes.

If you prefer Le Corbusier and the Villa Savoye and 1:200 scale.



To me the Farnsworth model is more intriguing.  Because there is less there, and it's more pure. Your thoughts?
