The Center of Architecture
The Center of Architecture exhibition of “Kaneji Domoto at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonia” explores the houses constructed and designed by the independent Japanese American architect and Taliesin fellow, Kaneji Domoto. The exhibition will show the architect’s life from growing up in midcentury America, his experience in a Japanese internment camp, to his lifework as an exemplary architect. His architectural styles and constructions are unique since he often referenced Japanese designs and landscape architecture to create his work. The exhibition will also demonstrate how he was able to incorporate his unique design sensibility in Usonia, NY, a community designed following the urban ideals of architect Frank Lloyd Wright. The exhibition will feature private archives, drawings, artifacts models, letters and photographs showing how Architect Domo translated Wright’s idiom into low cost construction.
