One half of knowing what you want is knowing what you must give up before you get it.
America’s Most Iconic Homes
In its newest exhibition, the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., takes on a topic near and dear to us all: home.
Running through the center of the exhibition, which includes actual wall frames and a spread of some 200 quintessential household objects, is a fabulous row of 14 celebrated American houses, reproduced as intricate scale models.
