Annabelle Selldorf is the principal of Selldorf Architects in New York City, an architectural design practice with an international reputation for work that is sensitive to context and program. The firm has worked on public and private projects that range from museums and libraries to a recycling facility in Brooklyn, including the renovations of the Neue Galerie and The Clark Art Institute.
The NOAF partners with NOMA in conjunction with the museum’s first design exhibition: The Essence of Things: Design and the Art of Reduction, an exhibition of the Vitra Design Museum (Germany) on view June 24 through September 11, 2016. The Essence of Things brings together more than 180 objects from 100 years of design history, ranging from humble items like wooden spoons to conceptual chairs by superstar designers.
Proceeds raised from these events will benefit the New Orleans Architecture Foundation. Tickets for the event are available through http://noaf2016.eventbrite.com/ and costs include: $100 Lecture and Luncheon; $50 Lecture Only. Copies of Selldorf Architects: Portfolio and Projects will be available for purchase.
