Small glass hologram showing "Four different views [of a house]: blueprint, frame structure, walls in place, and completed model" (from notes supplied by Joseph S. Accetta of ERIM, who donated the hologram to the MIT Museum); as one slowly tilts the glass, the image of the house changes from flat blueprint through the final finished model; best viewed by looking down into the lower right corner of the glass; glass plates are bordered and held together by silver tape around the edges, which forms a silver frame; tape on upper center of front of glass reads `4 images architectural'; tape on upper center of back of glass reads `This side towards viewer;' crack on front glass appears in upper right corner.
