Our good friend Susan Harkavy gave us a shout to tell us about this upcoming exhibition produced by WMF and sponsored by Knoll, Inc. opening at the Center for Architecture in mid-February 2010. The exhibition will travel from Gainesville, Florida to New York City, stopping at design schools and other venues everywhere in between. Consisting of large-scale photographs by the renowned photographer Andrew Moore and panels with five case studies including the ADGB Trade Union School in Bernau, Germany; the A. Conger Goodyear House in Old Westbury, New York; Riverview High School in Sarasota, Florida; the Grosse Pointe Public Library in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan; and the Kent Memorial Library in Suffield, Connecticut, the exhibit illustrates the impact that designers have on preserving landmarks.
