After buying William Saroyan’s home the project announced the contest for the development of a home-museum whose final round was held in Yerevan. The winner was Storaket architectural studio, which offered not the traditional but modern technology where space and time are united.
For the construction works project has acquired all permits from the Municipality of Fresno. There have been numerous meetings and arrangements with Saroyan’s relatives, friends and other connected people who live and work in different parts of the world. From them the project has received William Saroyan’s photos, paintings, graphics and other archival materials, which will be displayed with interesting non-standard solutions offered by Storaket.
William Saroyan dreamed that his home would become a space for students to come and work here. This is even mentioned in the writer’s will. According to William Saroyan’s will, we decided to create research corner that would give opportunity to students, scholars and other interested individuals to benefit from the vast heritage which William Saroyan left. Being created William Saroyan’s the world’s largest digital archive, we want it to make accessible for everyone on the globe. After the completion of the work, the house-museum will become a center of Saroyan studies. Guests of the House-Museum will be offered special guide visits, as well as will have a study room. Extend your learning and teaching beyond the classroom and deepen your research in the Museum’s study center. Take time off to learn more about William Saroyan and The William-Saroyan House-Museum!
