Wee Architecture at Florence Griswold Museum

November 1st, 2009

Chad Floyd and Mary-Lynn Radych of Centerbrook Architects have designed a Faerie Village, the Ivy Palisades, which is one of two dozen on display at the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme. The exhibition “Lyme Art Colony’s Wee Faerie Village” includes the creations of various artists and architects whose “spirited habitats” for little artistic muses are scattered about the 11-acre estate. Centerbrook’s master model maker Patrick McCauley built the Ivy Palisades, which is the home of Cornice, the faerie muse to the artist William Robinson (1861-1945).

The exhibition runs through Nov. 1.
