Scope and Content

File documents an executed project for a private gallery for the display and study of antique toys entitled Barenholtz Pavilion and also known as House I. The project was built as an addition to the existing residence of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Barenholtz on the corner of Rosedale Road and Galbreath Drive, Princeton, New Jersey. The architect of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard's residence is unknown. Material in this file was produced in 1967 and 1968.

Eisenman explores the permutations of architectural elements at the basis of House I in over 300 conceptual sketches (DR1994:0129:001-339). Furniture and display layouts for the antique toys are also part of this group (DR1994:0129:276-282). There is an apparently complete set of nineteen working drawings for the addition, which consists of a two-storey gallery with display areas for toys on the first and second floors, and an entertainment area with fireplace, bar and restroom on the first floor (DR1994:0129:405-423).

Eleven design development drawings are not by Eisenman; they were perhaps produced by Michael Erdman, whose name appears on the title block of some of the working drawings but whose role in this project has not been determined (DR1994:0129:340-350).

File contains conceptual drawings, design development drawings, presentation drawings, working drawings, publication drawings, photographic materials, and textual records. Conceptual drawings include plans, axonometrics, elevations, sections, furniture layouts, and details. Design development drawings include plans, elevations, and site plans. Manuscripts include load calculations with bending moment diagrams. Presentation drawings include elevations, sections, and axonometrics. Publication drawings include axonometrics. Working drawings include site plans, plans, elevations, sections, and details. Textual records include notes, some illustrated. Photographic materials include views of a model and drawing.
