Thomas Barrie - 'House and Home' + Dale Mulfinger - 'The Family Cabin'

This is NCSU Professor of Architecture, Thomas Barrie’s, fourth book exploring the alternative history of architecture and the personal and cultural meaning of what people call home.  Throughout House and Home: Cultural Contexts, Ontological Roles, house and home are critically examined to illustrate the perennial role and capacity of architecture to articulate the human condition, and also includes one of Barrie’s own designs. Joining him is “cabinologist” Dale Mulfinger, whose book, The Family Cabin: Inspiration for Camps, Cottages, and Cabins features 37 cabins via photographs, illustrations, and family stories. This event is sure to be a draw for architecture and design geeks alike. Come get a few idea for that dream home you've been planning Sunday, February 4 at 2pm.
