In addition to this as part of National Science Week, a group was able to share in presenting a design challenge inspired by the "Three Little Pigs, an Architects Tale".
In The Three Little Pigs: An Architectural Tale, the story follows the traditional tale of three pigs building three different houses – the first pig, Frank Gehry, builds a house of scraps looking strikingly like the Gehry House. The second pig, Phillip Johnson, opts to build a house of glass, reminiscent of The Glass House built by Johnson just down in New Canaan, Connecticut. The third pig, Frank Lloyd Wright, builds a house of stone and concrete, aka Fallingwater.
The were set with the design brief to design a home for one of the three pigs that's both environmentally sustainable and wolf proof. The results were impressive!
