In Collaboration: Art, Craft, and Modern Design of Noémi Pernessin & Antonin Raymond Building Philadelphia 2021 Spring Speaker Series

Tuesday, April 13, 2021 - 6:00pm - 7:30pm
United States

Please join us and hear one of the most amazing and underrecognized tales of the history of 20th Century Modern design. In August of 1914, a 27-year-old architect Antonin Raymond and 25-year-old artist Noémi Pernessin met on board the tramp steamer SS Giovani, as it was sailing from Naples Italy to New York City. It was the beginning of one of the most unique and prolific design collaborations in the history of architecture, spanning two continents over 60 years.

The Raymond's practice would touch virtually every building type on three continents — houses, churches, schools, embassies, office buildings, shops and department stores, and factories. This lecture will tell the story of their fruitful collaboration and focus, especially on Noémi Pernessin Raymond's profound contribution to their legacy. 

Watch ONLINE via ZOOM from the safety and comfort of your home. A link with instructions will be provided one hour prior to this virtual lecture.
