On view at the Yale School of Architecture Gallery from November 8-February 2, the ‘George Nelson: Architect, Writer, Designer, Teacher’ exhibition and symposium examines Nelson’s work in the context of both its own time and its legacy today. The event includes a comprehensive retrospective and symposium of one of the most influential figures in American design during the second half of the twentieth century. It will feature more than 120 three-dimensional objects including furniture, cabinets, lamps, and clocks, as well as fifty-plus historical documents in the form of drawings, photographs, architectural models and films. The symposium, ‘George Nelson: Designs for Living’ will specifically be held November 9-10. For more information, please visit here.
