The creative minds behind Luftwerk have turned to Kickstarter to crowdfund a project that would transform Ludwig Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House into an immersive light show. Similar to their installation at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater residence in 2011, artistic duo Petra Bachmaier and Sean Gallero plan to illuminate the “structural minimalism and transparency” of the house in a way that would offer a new perspective of the modern masterpiece.

Check out a video of the proposed light show and Luftwerk’s work at Fallingwater, after the break...

Now, the question is will Luftwerk be given the opportunity to work with the Farnsworth House's newly installed hydraulic lifts?
