The drawings and theoretical writing of Hungarian-French architect Yona Friedman, born 1923, combine science and sociology with the aim of a socially and ecologically responsible architecture. His drawings are often of lightweight mobile structures that can be used according to a person’s peregrinations. Employing the science and geometry of architecture, his narrative style reveals a social concern that has been characterized as approaching utopian. Despite Friedman’s significant reputation in Europe as both an artist and architect, his work has not yet been presented in the United States. This solo exhibition will introduce Friedman’s work to many American and New York audiences for the first time.
