Mark your calendar, the 2014 AFN and AIA Lincoln Architects’ Home Tour is planned for Sunday, September 21!
The purpose of the Architect’s Home Tour is to raise awareness of the role of an architect in the design of a home. This year’s Home Tour features six architect-designed homes, each of which explore architectural form and function in its own way.
Each home expands the traditional look of “home” through a diversity ofdesign elements and materials. In the homes open for this year’s tour, you’ll find a diverse range of styles and enhanced functionality, from prairie style to modern steel and stone, from a geothermal system to passive solar design. Boundaries of what we ordinarily imagine as “home” are continually challenged.
The Architectural Foundation and AIA Lincoln invite you to tour each of these unique and innovative homes and to discover the possibilities of an architect-designed home.
