3 in 1: Contemporary Explorations in Architecture and Design

Viewing: Galleries 283-285
Reception: Griffin Court, The Modern Wing

To celebrate the opening of 3 in 1: Contemporary Explorations in Architecture and Design, the Architecture & Design Society presents a lecture by Stefan Scholten of the Dutch design duo, Scholten & Baijings. Scholten & Baijings have redefined contemporary Dutch design by combining minimal forms and a balanced use of color and have collaborated with artisans and industrial manufacturers such as Hay, 1616 Arita, Georg Jensen, and Maharam. Following the lecture, attendees will get the first look at the exhibition, which includes Colour Installation, a custom-designed installation by Scholten & Baijings.

Developed as three mini-exhibitions in one, 3 in 1: Contemporary Explorations in Architecture and Design offers examinations of fashion, architecture, and product design illustrating the range of work in the museum’s architecture and design collection. The practitioners presented—Japanese designer Issey Miyake, architect Greg Lynn, and designers Scholten & Baijings—are at the forefront of their respective fields and well known for using research, experimentation, and innovation to drive new forms of architecture and design.
