NEUMANN MONSON ARCHITECTS

Going Home

GOING HOME  |  NOVEMBER 2-15  |  PEDESTRIAN MALL, DOWNTOWN IOWA CITY

 

Explore the meaning of home with Neumann Monson and three local architecture firms, at the University of Iowa Stanley Museum of Art’s new temporary pop-up exhibition.

No two people hold the same memories of home. Layered recollection sets what sticks. 

Covers up to the chin, kitchen timer, laughter in repetition, who sits where on average. 

Consider the fabric of an Inside:  

Rooms stack and nestle, blurred by ephemera – a panel, a screen, a curtain, an open door. Expanse of ceiling. Noise-muffling walls. C’mon, knock first! Windows invite shade-softened light.    

Freshen the walls with another coat of paint.  Along them, objects congregate – a souvenir, some art, a snapshot cut-out. Life unfurls here. As we engage the many layers that constitute a house, we embed the experiences that become the place we call Home.
