—Henry David Thoreau

 

Annabelle Selldorf has donated this original photograph, which she shot on an island off the coast of Maine during the days of lockdown. The print measures 8” x 10” in and is signed by the architect alongside a handwritten quote from Henry David Thoreau.

 

Born in Germany, Selldorf launched her eponymous architecture practice in New York City in 1988. The firm creates public and private spaces that manifest a clear and modern sensibility to enduring impact. Since its inception, the firm’s guiding principles have been deeply rooted in humanism.

 

Clients include cultural institutions such as the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, The Frick Collection, The Clark Art Institute, and Neue Galerie New York. Recent completed projects include the Sunset Park Material Recovery Facility on the Brooklyn waterfront, the Rubell Museum in Miami, and Luma Arles, the conversion of a former rail depot into a new contemporary art center in Arles.

 

The firm has created numerous galleries for David Zwirner, Hauser & Wirth, and Gladstone Gallery, among others, and designed exhibitions for Frieze Masters and the Venice Art Biennale. Residential architecture is also an important part of the firm’s portfolio with projects ranging from multi-family condominiums, townhomes, and single family dwellings across the United States and abroad.

 

In 2017, Selldorf was elected to the American Academy of Arts & Letters, three years after receiving the organization’s prestigious Award in Architecture. She is also the recipient of the 2016 Medal of Honor from the American Institute of Architects New York Chapter.
