    HISTORIC HOUSE SAVED FROM AUCTION BLOCK

    The famous Farnsworth House, an icon of mid-20th century modernism, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, was in grave danger in December 2003. It was for sale at auction, and preservationists feared it might be purchased by an owner who would move it from its original setting and/or make it inaccessible to the public. Next week we'll review how preservationists won the day and see what their plans are for the landmark house. (Photo by Jon Miller, Hedrich Blessing)

    HISTORIC NEIGHBORHOOD MOTORS ON

    Detroit, Michigan is the traditional heart of the U.S. automobile manufacturing industry. One of Detroit's neighborhoods, Milwaukee Junction, though rich in history, has been devastated by years of neglect. Now, the neighborhood is making a comeback. Next week we'll look at a housing development designed by architects McIntosh Poris Associates, which is leading a transformation of part of Motor City into a vital urban neighborhood while retaining whispers of the past.
