Architects and fans of architecture everywhere will be saddened by this one - as a fall out from Hurrican Ike which hit the US late last week, the river adjacent to the Farnsworth house burst its banks and caused a 14 ft flood. Much of Mies's best work was under water for the weekend. Furniture was rescued in time, but damage has been caused to finishes and services and the house is closed to the public until further notice.
