With bold colors, distinctive geometries, and unconventional approaches to designing spaces, the architecture of Arthur Lubetz imagines and transforms buildings in surprising ways. Discover the work of Lubetz’s fifty-year old architectural practice, which operates today as Front Studio in Pittsburgh and New York. From the vibrant, tilted façade of The Glass Lofts residences to the sliced and stacked boxes of the Sharpsburg Community Library, these are structures born of provocative ideas about how design can energize our built environment.
The exhibition features an architect-designed intervention together with models, drawings, and photography on loan from the Carnegie Mellon University Architecture Archives, Front Studio, and other lenders.
