Architectural CAD students visit area masterpiece

Kishwaukee College students in Computer-Aided Design (CAD) 154 Advanced CAD/Architectural and CAD 254 Computer-Aided Architectural Design, visited an architectural masterpiece on April 19: Farnsworth House in Plano. Designed in 1945 by one of the leading figures in the modernist movement in architectural design, Mies van der Rohe, the house was built for Chicago physician Dr. Edith Farnsworth and was completed in 1951. Farnsworth House’s most renowned feature is its walls of glass that allow nature inside and make the house become part of the natural world outside. The students toured the house and were accompanied by Rick Bunton, CAD instructor, and Matthew Feuerborn, Dean of Career Technologies. Students participating were Aaron Davis, Rochelle; Jacob Felz, DeKalb; Chris Griffith, DeKalb; Sue Kim, Sterling; Heather Malkus, Rochelle; Sam Marchesi, Rochelle; and Kevin Wolfe Crystal Lake.
