The owner of this 1800s farmhouse, in rural Pennsylvania, grew up in the old farmhouse right across the street. Her mother still lives there, and like the creek that runs through both properties, family flows freely back and forth. I imagined this family bond as a physical force, like a gravitational field, acting on the structure and “pulling” it toward the owner’s childhood home; a sculptural expression of family connection. Twisting it in this way opened up new sight lines as well, allowing the owner to gaze upon her childhood home and the surrounding fields as the torquing volume "nods" towards them.
