Follies, Function & Form: Imagining Olana's Summer House
The historic 1886 Plan of Olana is largely accurate, yet it contains one mystery: a structure labeled “Summer House”. Summer houses were common in early American gardens and public landscapes, yet there is no documentary evidence about the style or form of this structure at Olana.
This catalogue features the twenty-one visionary designs depicting what Olana’s summer house could be. Designers presented summer house concept sketches in response to Olana during this 2016-2017 exhibition organized by The Olana Partnership, in collaboration with the New York Chapters of The American Institute of Architects (AIANY) and the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA-NY).
