Pratt + Noguchi

Friday, May 17, 2019 - Thursday, June 6, 2019

A collaboration between The Noguchi Museum and Pratt Institute, Interior Design.

Each spring, Pratt Institute’s Interior Design Graduate Level Qualifying Design Studio course asks students to draw inspiration from Isamu Noguchi’s work.

This year, students researched and analyzed works from the Museum's permanent collection to use as conceptual drivers for a hypothetical Noguchi Museum Annex and Community Center set in 2030 in DUMBO, Brooklyn.

Work from all participating students is exhibited at The Noguchi Museum in the lower-level gallery; including drawings, examples of object analysis, and six select student projects in their entirety.
