[Hariri, Gisue]Hariri & Hariri, Recent Work.

A lecture by Gisue Hariri of the architectural firm Hariri & Hariri. Gisue Hariri and Mojgan Hariri, Cornell-educted sisters, opened their New York City practice in 1986 and now exemplify the spirit of the emerging generation of new architects. High style-handicraft and a social sense of place -- qualities often considered mutually exclusive -- catalytically coexist in their work. Inventive use of materials, pure understanding of light and space, and a philosophical search for the essence of existence are part of their approach. March 8, 2001. 78 min.

[Hartman, Laura and Fernau, Richad]Fernau & Hartman: Recent Work

A presentation by Richard Fernau and Laura Hartman who formed Fernau & Hartman Architects in 1980 and immediately established a unique reputation for diversity and excellence. Their work combines a sensitivity to historical and vernacular buildings with formal architectural innovation, a special concern for landscape and interiors, and great attention to material detailing. Fernau and Hartman are committed to working at a variety of scales -- from furniture and interiors to residential, commercial and institutional buildings.
