AMNP [among others, I'm sure] was contacted last week by the National Trust for Historic Preservation regarding Mies van de Rohe’s Farnsworth House – which was recently damaged pretty seriously due to flooding from hurricane Ike [as I'm sure most of you have heard/read already].  The building is managed by Landmarks Illinois on behalf o the National Trust [the home's actual owner], and they need help raising money to restore the home over the waters have receded.
