Nicholas Fox Weber and Toshiko Mori, “Josef Albers: Minimal Means, Maximum Effect”

Nicholas Fox Weber, director of the Josef and Anni Albers Foundation, will evoke the personality and sensibilities of Josef Albers, the Bauhaus faculty member, through reflections on his personal acquaintance with Albers at Yale as well as descriptions of recent projects by the Albers Foundation that affirm the Bauhaus spirit of design and continue its commitment to improving human life generally. Toshiko Mori, Robert P. Hubbard Professor in the Practice of Architecture, will share her recent projects for a health care facility, a cultural center in Senegal, and student projects from recent GSD studios in collaboration with the Albers Foundation. Part of the series “Then and Now: Walter Gropius and the Lineage of the Bauhaus,” sponsored by the Breger Fund in Honor of Walter Gropius.
