Round Table Review
Here’s a photo impression from our first Round Table event, where 25 members of the Iconic Houses Network gathered to discuss the most pressing issues affecting them today. The session was moderated by Lynda Waggoner of Fallingwater and hosted by Kimberli Meyer, director of the Schindler House. The attendees included representatives of houses in Australia, France and the United Kingdom.
In a lively discussion, custodians of homes by Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier exchanged their thoughts on various topics, including the three greatest challenges facing them as directors and administrators and their best innovative ideas to share with colleagues. These ‘big ideas’ included recent activities in fundraising, interpretation, preservation and audience development.
Last but not least, some participants related learning experiences, by sharing those things that they would do differently if they could do them over again.
After the Round Table session, founder Natascha Drabbe (Van Schijndel House) gave a presentation on the Iconic Houses website. Finally, Raymond Neutra popped open the champagne, and it was time to celebrate the official launch of the Iconic Houses Network and website.
Members can read the minutes of the Round Table event soon by logging on to the members area on the website.
