Architecture signifies structure: shelters that provide a roof over our heads, or landmarks that define the character of a town, or qualities of buildings that we pass each day. While the reach of architects often extends into the realms of industrial, textile and other forms of design, and the term itself is applied to many branches of learning, this exhibition focuses mainly upon buildings and the built environment. About Buildings takes a general approach to the notion of architecture, in which landmarks and details of the discipline are seen in a variety of forms and in depictions of buildings of New England to the western United States—selected from the collection of the Farnsworth Museum.
