Hugh Hardy Book Talk at the Noguchi Museum, May 12

Best known for his work designing theaters, performing arts venues, public spaces, and cultural facilities across the United States, the eminent New York-based architect Hugh Hardy released a book in April 2013 titled Theater of Architecture. Featuring twenty of his projects both within New York City and beyond–from the restored Radio City Music Hall to state-of-the-art facilities at the Botanical Research Institute of Texas, in Fort Worth–and spanning his fifty-year career, Mr. Hardy discusses the development of each project and the challenges, strategies, and human concerns that influenced the design. For the Noguchi Museum’s Second Sundays program for May, Mr. Hardy will engage in an interview and conversation with architecture and design reporter, critic, and editor Julie Iovine. Theater of Architecture is published by Princeton Architectural Press.
