America’s Most Iconic Homes

In its newest exhibition, the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., takes on a topic near and dear to us all: home.
Running through the center of the exhibition, which includes actual wall frames and a spread of some 200 quintessential household objects, is a fabulous row of 14 celebrated American houses, reproduced as intricate scale models.
