accumulation

brief: use color and materials to transform the farnsworth house into a cafe set in aspen, colorado.

concept: wrap the house in a second layer of glass to trap snow and rainwater, insulating the cafe in a layer of weather that changes with the seasons. the interior becomes a microcosmic moment of the exterior.

designed in collaboration with xiaoke li
