Some pictures of the Mushroom House in Powdermills Park, Rochester, NY.


This is the Mushroom House. A real mushroom in the foreground. Actually, the original design was inspired by a piece of Queen Anne's Lace in a coke bottle. The Antells were the original owners. Marge, a potter, designed the house with Jim Johnson in the late 1960's. The "cave" addition was done in 2001-2002.


Underlit - very dramatic!
