The Importance of Drawing: Ralph Rapson's Legacy exhibition, Fall 2010.
The influence of Ralph Rapson on architecture is profound. One of his most admired skills -- besides designing outstanding, humanistic architecture -- is his exceptional ability to draw. This exhibition features examples of Rapson's work in addition to that of many of his Minnesota colleagues and students.
In a partnership with the Architecture and Landscape Architecture Library, original drawings by Rapson will be exhibited in the library's exhibition gallery, with additional examples of Rapson's work, along with work by many of his Minnesota colleagues and students, featured in the HGA Gallery.
