The Landscapes of Isamu Noguchi: The Garden as Sculpture
A lecture by Marc Treib
Probably no figure in modern American landscape architecture has been more influential, yet more ambiguously regarded, than the sculptor Isamu Noguchi. Although his landscapes include several of the twentieth century’s most original designs, and have received almost universal praise, Noguchi nonetheless occupies a place well-removed from normal practice...
Join us for a special presentation by Marc Treib, Professor of Architecture Emeritus at the University of California, Berkeley who will speak about the work of the acclaimed mid-century American designer Isamu Noguchi.
Professor Treib is a respected landscape and architectural historian who has published widely on modern and historical subjects in the United States, Japan, and Scandinavia. He is the author of Noguchi in Paris: Isamu Noguchi and the Unesco Garden.
This lecture is brought to you by ATCH (Architecture Theory Criticism History) Research Centre, UQ Architecture; Landscape Architecture, School of Design, Creative Industries Faculty, QUT; and State Library of Queensland, Asia Pacific Design Library.
