The New York Times asked three architects to design miniature houses intended to be printed, cut, folded and glued at your desk. “Part craft project and part meditation on the evolution of domestic space,” the project offers a fun and achievable creative break (akin to an afternoon art workshop during a retreat).

It got us wondering: could we make a Lodge version?  

We settled on Threshold, the site-specific art installation made by Roger Feldman in 2013. Roger supplied a fresh copy of his original plans, Tim Blanks filled in a few missing measurements from the field, and Paul Soupiset translated all of that into miniature paper form. 

Cutting, folding, gluing—after a few minutes it can begin to feel like a contemplative practice. Give it a try (and if you’re feeling really inspired, try adding color)!
