Farnsworth House: Upcoming Events

Architecture of Asana: Summer

In harmony with “Less is more,” discover how this philosophy stands true for the architectural style of Mies van der Rohe as well as the practice of yoga and meditation. Join us for a beginner-friendly gentle yoga class and time for silent meditation and reflection along the Fox River. Please bring your own yoga mat, water bottle (no glass, please), comfortable clothes to move in, walking shoes, socks to wear in the house and an open heart.

Space is limited; make your reservation today!


Moonlight Tour

Discover Mies van der Rohe’s celebrated Farnsworth House in a new light during our special Moonlight Tours, back by popular demand. These exclusive tours will start at dusk and return after dark, lasting approximately 90 minutes. Guests will be led along a lighted path with woods on one side and the Fox River on the other, to enjoy a full guided tour of Farnsworth House illuminated against the evening sky.


Geometry of Light

We are so pleased to host this light-based art intervention by Luftwerk in collaboration with Iker Gil, which projects light and patterns both inside and on the grounds surrounding the Farnsworth House. Presented in concert with a sound-piece developed in direct response to the site by Oriol Tarragó, this intervention will reveal underlying geometries that relate the house to its river floodplain site, topography, and natural landscape. Co-presented by Farnsworth House and MAS Context.
