Annabelle Selldorf Architecture

What's that you say, we found ANOTHER amazing woman / designer to work with us here in the studio? It's true y'all, last November we were lucky enough to meet and hire Cyd Jaggers. Our sweet friend Jessica Green from A Little Weather was co-teaching a weaving concentration at Penland School of Crafts with Rachel Meginnes from Plain Weave Studios, and Cyd was in the that dreamy class. Jess knew she'd be the right match. Cyd also has a background in architecture (she's worked for some dreamy designers, including Marlon Blackwell Architects and Eskew + Dumez + Ripple). You can see how we might get along super well.

This week she's introducing us to one of her favorite architects, Annabelle Selldorf. Each week one of us here in the studio will be posting about something related to design, art, craft or music that we're feeling. We're pretty into this one. Thank you Cyd! (More on Pinterest!)

I’m so excited to be heading to New York in a couple weeks to visit friends. My typical routine when traveling is to make a map of the architecture I’d like to see, and then spend my days walking from one building to another. It’s admittedly very nerdy, but a nice way to create a loose itinerary for myself. At the top of my list for this trip are the David Zwirner Gallery and Neue Galerie, both by Annabelle Selldorf Architects. Selldorf’s style is beautifully restrained and quiet. She is adept at more subtle architectural practices, as opposed to the bold form-making that is currently so prevalent. Below are a few images from the two buildings.
