Arckit’s open-ended building platform allows you to bring iconic architectural gems to life from around the world as never before. This Arckit set of components and step-by-step video enables you to build an Arckit model representation of the ultimate minimalist masterpiece that is Farnsworth House.

The Edith Farnsworth House, formerly the Farnsworth House, is a historical house designed and constructed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe between 1945 and 1951. The house was constructed as a one-room weekend retreat in a rural setting in Plano, Illinois

The Farnsworth House sits isolated on a plot that faces the Fox River, establishing the architect's concept of simple living. Open views from all sides of the building help enlarge the living space area and aid flow between the living space and its natural surroundings.

You can also add the Arckit Building Plate as a base to build from and for displaying your creation  (the Building Plate is not included in the kit). Please note, if you use the building plate, there is no need to include the Links to the underside of the model as indicated in the step-by-step video and PDF.

Please note:  Over the years we have created representations of iconic buildings to showcase Arckit’s vast capabilities as a modular scale model building platform. Due to popular demand, we have put together the components necessary to build Arckit representations of some of these structures, including the Farnsworth House. To avoid any disappointment, please note that this step-by-step building kit is plainly packaged without any print, brochure or reference to the building. It comes in a white Arckit box with only the components, packed in separate eco-friendly bags. As we strive to be environmentally friendly, we have not included printed instructions in the box, however you can find them in the listing online – both as a PDF and as a video tutorial.
