schindler and scouts


on friday I gave a group tour at the schindler house to a group of girl scouts earning their architecture badges. I had no idea the girl scouts offer architecture badges, but there you have it. a group of 11-13 year old at the schindler house - a house that is challenging to understand as an adult, but they loved it. they were attentive, enthusiastic, asked me better questions than most tourists, and they LOVED the sleeping baskets. I dont know how much camping the girls do - I was never a girl scout - but they seemed to really love the concept of a house as a permanent campsite. living most of your life outdoors, sleeping on the roof, cooking on an open fire.

then today I received this great email from their group leader (who is also an architect):

The girl scouts LOVED the tour of the house. They are really excited about architecture and are going to design their own dream room.

Thanks again

made my day.

That is just about the cutest thing I've ever heard. Maybe if I knew I could be an architecture nerd I would've joined the Girl Scouts. But then there's that whole outdoors component. So hmm, still not for me.
