Andrew's Modern House, A Summary So Far
Andrew Blauvelt and Julie Snow are friends. He's a design curator at the Walker Art Center. She's an architect. After designing Julie's modernist book (Julie Snow Architects, Princeton Architectural Press), Andrew is having Julie design his modernist house. But they're both worried about the outcome. The south facing exterior wall is concrete and concrete is tricky to get perfect. Since December 2005, I've been tracking construction of the house, which is located at 38th and Lyndale avenues in south Minneapolis on the Building Minnesota podcast. Andrew's Modern House, A Summary So Far brings new listeners up-to-date on the progress of the house through early September 2005. At that time, both Andrew and Julie worried about a concrete wall that wraps around the bottom of the house. (Photo by Scott Theisen)
