The life of houses

Buildings? Houses, homes, whatever form a building takes, it has a story to tell. Atlanta’s practice is about making the life of houses known. When people look at a building they see the architectural

components and visual aesthetics. Her practice is about more than just these elements, it is about telling their story, what it was used for, who lived there, what happened to it. A building contains more secrets and history within its structure then we may think and that is exactly what this project has explored. This dollhouse explores the history of four national trust houses, telling the stories of the people who lived there and how they have connected these four houses together.
