In 1956, Wharton Esherick built a workshop annex to his iconic studio-home. The new building was geometric, consisting of three hexagonal modules that were added onto the end of Esherick’s expressionist style log cabin garage. The design of the 1956 Workshop has long been credited as the collaborative work of Esherick and architect Louis Kahn. Join us as we celebrate a little-acknowledged contributor to the project: Anne Tyng, an architect who worked in Kahn’s office, in his shadow, for the better part of two decades. During this 20-minute program, we’ll delve into design drawings, archival photographs, and oral history interviews to explore the ways in which Tyng’s lifelong passion for geometric architecture shaped the 1956 Workshop.
