Tracing the career of the Iran-born American artist, renowned for his public art commissions which include bridges, reading rooms and poetry gardens.
From his early works on paper produced in Iran during the late 1950s, to Armajani's most recent structure, the Alfred Whitehead Reading Room specifically created for the outdoor space at Parasol unit, the exhibition features significant pieces from the breadth of his five decade-long career.
The artist's work is influenced by his Persian cultural heritage, his knowledge of Western philosophy, literature and poetry, and his interest in American vernacular architecture.
