Pritzker Prize-winner Kevin Roche is one of America’s most influential and prolific architects, acclaimed for his skillful integration of man-made and natural environments. Drawing on material originally presented at the Yale School of Architecture, the exhibition has been expanded to highlight Roche’s contributions to the fabric of New York City, including the Ford Foundation Headquarters and more than four decades of master planning, design, renovations, and new additions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Kevin Roche: Architecture as Environment features original drawings, models, photographs, and ephemera documenting Roche’s career, along with extensive video presentations of projects and interviews with the architect.

The Museum’s presentation of Kevin Roche: Architecture as Environment is made possible by the Ford Foundation.
