Funeral for a Home commemorates Philadelphia’s housing stock, and the lives those homes contain. Every year thousands of aging homes are demolished across the United States.
With these passings must also come reflection, and it is that quiet moment of pause and celebration of life that this book makes possible.
Funeral for a Home marked a ground breaking collaborative effort between artists, community leaders, historians, and neighbourhood residents to creatively and respectfully honour the places we call home.
This project was organized by Temple Contemporary at Tyler School of Art.
