Above, the group at Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello

Last weekend first year IARC students journeyed on the annual trip to Monticello and Falling Water. Students studied the two historical masterpieces “modern” for their time in Patrick Lee Lucas’s History and Theory of Design History class.  The group traveled by bus to Monticello, Thomas Jefferson’s homestead, and then trekked to University of Virginia campus. The students then traveled to Pennsylvania to check out Frank Lloyd Wright’s masterpiece Fallingwater. Fallingwater can be compared to a set of drawers, pushing and pulling their way out onto their place on the small waterfall inset on the mountainside.  The group had time for personal exploration when their tour ended to allow for some sketching and photo documenting noteworthy moments of the trip.

Capturing smaller moments Patrick Lucas documented snippets of Falling water in a grid pattern. Below are two pages from of some of the findings.
