Myth re-envisions the home shrine through the lens of the contemporary architectural installation. The project learns from the careful collection and curation of sentimental objects commonly found in home shrines, producing an emotionally resonant experience that recalibrates contemporary notions of atmosphere and engagement.

About the Douglas A. Garofalo Fellowship
Named in honor of architect and educator Doug Garofalo (1958–2011), the Douglas A. Garofalo Fellowship is a nine-month teaching fellowship that provides emerging designers the opportunity to teach studio and seminar courses in the undergraduate and graduate programs and conduct independent design research. The fellowship also includes a public lecture at the Graham Foundation and an exhibition at the UIC School of Architecture in the spring.

The Douglas A. Garofalo Fellowship is made possible through the generous support of individual and corporate donations, as well as a grant from the Graham Foundation for Advanced Studies in the Fine Arts.
