History by Design takes us on a journey through time, from the 1700’s to present day, where we explore the architecture of a simple three-room house, English and Dutch barns, and the communities that built them. Through the use of cutting-edge 3D animation and digital technology these rural structures are transformed into modern day living spaces for the homeowners of today. There is a thread that weaves through the generations of these homes, a deep history, telling us a story and reimagining the roots that connect us all.
