NewsVirtual Tour of Nakashima Compound


Mira Nakashima takes us on a 30-minute tour of the Nakashima compound. The buildings combine the International style and Modernist influences with Japanese carpentry tradition, and feature innovative shapes, like thin shell conoidal and hyperbolic paraboloid roofs.

Join us as she highlights the career of George Nakashima, his work in Europe and Asia, the Nakashima family life, the lifelong spiritual influences that came about during his architectural work on the Sri Aurobindo Ashram dormitory in Pondicherry, India, the Nakashima experience during the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II, and the eventual move to Bucks County, Pennsylvania where he set up a woodworking shop in 1945 that remains the site of an active business.
