From now until June 16, visitors to Woodlawn in Alexandria, Virginia, will discover All American House, the first show house in a planned series that will explore the history and future of design in America by pairing young designers with historic properties. This year, design students from George Washington University and UNC at Greensboro were selected by jury to create 21st-century rooms in the 18th-century residence—which used to be part of historic Mount Vernon—while Corcoran College of Art and Design students have virtually re-imagined the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Pope-Leighey house (pictured above), located on the same grounds as Woodlawn. The students’ concept work is on display in one of Woodlawn’s rooms.
The All American House is sponsored by MADE: In America, a non-profit organization promoting American commerce and industry in a global economy. It showcases furniture by MADE: In America companies including Century, Duralee, Edward Ferrell + Lewis Mittman, Hickory Chair, Keith Fritz and Niermann Weeks; McLean designer Barbara Hawthorn and New York designer Alexa Hampton advised the competitors. woodlawnpopeleighey.org/events
