This closely competed match was a great way to finish the house futsal competition, demonstrating both the healthy rivalry between the houses, and the tight community within the houses. Day 2 saw Aragon, who appeared to be confident after their earlier victory, tackle Petypher who were hoping to enhance on their defeat.
The second match, Gryphon vs Petypher, saw a better turnout of players, with both groups having a full line-up. From futuristic dormitories to submit-Katrina communities constructed on shared pursuits in music, the pictures evoke the experience of residential area and illustrate the evolution and diversity of American home structure, design, and group.
Close by, within the middle of this primary gallery, dollhouses — a stately, chockablock Victorian and a peppy fashionable dream house designed by an architect for Woman’s Day magazine in 1976 — are outfitted with the decorating totems of the day (an ermine rug in the former, and ethnic masks and low-slung orange sofas in the latter).
