The Fargo House is a project by artist and architect Dennis Maher.
Dennis Maher was selected as the 2012-2013 Artist-in-Residence at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. For the duration of his residency, Maher regarded the FARGO HOUSE as a catalyst for a project involving tradespeople in the home renovation industry. Eight tradespeople representing distinct professions--plumbing, painting, electrical, masonry, windows/doors, roofing, flooring, and weatherization--were invited to take a private tour of Maher's residence and to talk about the making of his house and their work in the construction industries. Maher then commissioned each tradesperson to build a "house model" utilizing only the materials of his/her respective trade. The house models were the genesis of a superstructure of Maher's design, entitled House of Collective Repair.
