Annabelle Selldorf is the Principal of Selldorf Architects. Born and raised in Germany, she received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Pratt Institute, and a Master of Architecture degree from Syracuse University in Florence, Italy. In 1988 she established her own firm in New York City, Selldorf Architects. Their projects include a wide range of cultural and public institutions, commercial structures, and private residences including large new construction, historic renovations, and exhibition design. In 2001, Selldorf Architects was launched to international prominence with the transformation of a 1914 Carrère & Hastings building into the New York museum, the Neue Galerie. The firm has since designed leading art galleries and museums in New York and London, including David Zwirner, Hauser & Wirth, and the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, MA, all of which are included in her new book, Selldorf Architects: Portfolio and Projects (April 25, 2016; Phaidon).

This lecture & luncheon are presented in conjunction with New Orleans Museum of Art's launch of their exhibit The Essence of Things: Design and the Art of Reduction. This exhibition celebrates simplicity in design and is an exhibition of the VITRA DESIGN MUSEUM. It will be presented at the New Orleans Museum of Art June 24 - Sept 11, 2016.
