Jens Risom Prefab Revisited

Jens Risom’s prefab getaway on Block Island is one of my favorite examples of modernist architecture of all time. I previously posted about it several months here on campsite. When I originally posted it there were only two quality photos I could find, but I have discovered several more great photos in addition to the video tour by Gary Nadeau after the jump.

    is the first photo mirrored?

    I feel like it is not Risom’s house on the first picture. I’m saying that because of the furnitures and the hill.
    What’s the truth? @campsite

    Yeah I see what you’re saying. I am 90% positive that it is I found that photo with a group from a Life magazine shoot from when the house was constructed.
