Please join us for a discussion about the design of galleries, museums, and private collections with renowned architect Annabelle Selldorf and Los Angeles Times Architecture Critic Christopher Hawthorne. German-born architect Selldorf is the founding principal of Selldorf Architects, a New York City-based architecture practice. Christopher Hawthorne has been the architecture critic for the Los Angeles Times since 2004. Before coming to The Times, he was architecture critic for Slate and a frequent contributor to the New York Times. He is the author, with Alanna Stang, of ‘The Green House: New Directions in Sustainable Architecture.’ Hauser & Wirth occupies the restored Globe Mills complex, a collection of interconnected late 19th and early 20th century buildings and internal outdoor spaces that have been adapted by Creative Space, Los Angeles, in consultation with Selldorf Architects. The gallery and other recent projects by Selldorf Architects will be the topic of conversation, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego CA; The Clark Art Institute, Williamstown MA; LUMA Arles, Arles, France, as well as exhibition design for ‘Fragile Legacy’ (2016) Corning Museum of Glass, Corning NY; ‘Frank Stella: A Retrospective’ (2015) Whitney Museum of American Art, New York NY, and ‘The Encyclopedic Palace’ (2013) Venice Biennale, Venice, Italy. The discussion will be followed by a reception and book signing of ‘Selldorf Architects: Portfolio and Projects,’ released April 2016. This event is free but reservations are required.
