The Unbuilt Crosby Arboretum and the Legacy of E. Fay Jones

This virtual discussion will explore the work by Hans Herrmann, AIA and students to create physical and virtual reality models of four unrealized E. Fay Jones buildings at the Crosby Arboretum, buildings intended to accompany the iconic Pinecote Pavilion completed in 1985.

The Unbuilt Crosby Arboretum is the only known E. Fay Jones multi-building composition/campus. Robert Ivy, FAIA, AIA CEO and biographer on E. Fay Jones, will highlight how Jones’ work is deeply rooted to place and nature. Jones received the AIA Gold Medal in 1990, the Institute’s highest honor.

Tickets to the panel are free; $15 tickets will permit additional entry into a giveaway for various prizes!

This course is available for AIA Continuing Ed (1 LU); please provide AIA Member # upon signup.
