The Farnsworth House located near Plano, IL was designed and built by architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in 1951. Unfortunately, the house, considered one of the most famous examples of modernist domestic architecture, was flooded in the aftermath of Hurricane Ike. The house is open on a limited schedule to raise funds for its repair. Sarah Heffern give more info for the National Trust for Historic Preservation
