Randy Gragg, Guest Curator, Quest For Beauty; Director, John Yeon Center for Architecture and the Landscape

Few architects have influenced so many facets of a region as John Yeon. Largely self-taught, and working independently, he saw both architecture and conservation as visual arts, whether he was designing distinctive buildings, shaping precedent-stretching gardens, or successfully fighting to preserve some of the Northwest’s most treasured vistas.

Presented in conjunction with Quest for Beauty: The Architecture, Landscapes, and Collections of John Yeon, on view May 13 through September 3, 2017.
