The Gamble House's handsome Craftsman architecture is a work of art in its own right, but leave it to Machine Project to turn the Pasadena bungalow into a living installation. As part of AxS Festival 2014, the 1909 house will be furnished with contemporary paintings by California artists and play host to a number of unconventional tours, including a house flashlight-led exterior expedition, large-scale lawn architecture, a solar power workshop in the basement, a letter writing class in the attic and more—check out Machine Project's site for a full list of events. Plus, there are two open house days with free, self-guided tours (Sept. 27 and Oct. 2), as well as a family day (Oct. 5) with free admission for kids 17 and under.
