Architecture Exhibit at CMoA

The Carnegie Mellon University Architecture Archives initiated a proposal that resulted in the Action, Ideas, Architecture: Arthur Lubetz/Front Studio exhibition that is currently on display at the Heinz Architectural Center of the Carnegie Museum of Art through May 22. The Architecture Archives retained Charles L. Rosenblum, Adjunct Faculty in the School of Architecture, to curate the exhibit, and loaned numerous drawings and models for the show from its Arthur Lubetz Associates Collection.
