Event description

Join us for 'John Andrews's Laconic Legacy, Gallery Tour and Talk with Kevin Liu'!

Join designer Kevin Liu for an afternoon in the gallery which will include a talk and tour of the exhibition. In 2022, the Harvard University Graduate School of Design celebrated the 50 year anniversary of George Gund Hall which opened in October of 1972 and preceded the release of the book of the same name on John Andrews’s career to be published in almost 40 years. Kevin will speak on Andrews’s early use of simple diagrams and innovative forms of collaboration and communication over his career with illustrated examples and presentation. He will also touch briefly on John Andrews as one of the first “international” architects which led to him receiving the prestigious commission for George Gund Hall over all of his much older and distinguished peers and mentors, at the age of 35.

Saturday gallery opening 11:00am - 3:00pm
