Re: “Material World

I'm glad to see that the Menokin project provokes discussion about larger preservation issues in our region. The process of saving and interpreting Menokin--what it can teach students, how it sparks creative thinking and promotes good stewardship of historic places around the nation--is at the heart of our mission. To learn more about Menokin and our project, visit: And come visit us--only an hour drive from RVA.

Re: “Menokin Makeover

The Menokin Foundation has been studying the use of structural glass to reinterpret the missing exterior walls of the house, but the concept has not yet been executed. We're working with Machado and Silvetti on a design that's innovative, yet also feasible and fundable. The firm was hired only in February and we are now working on concept renderings. The remnants of the locust tree root in the back steps will certainly be a challenge which the preservation architects on the team will address. Keep updated on our progress through FB and our web site!
