“Nakashima: A Design Survey” discusses the evolution of the Nakashima workshop, from George Nakashima’s early work in Japan, India, Seattle, the camp in Minidoka, Idaho to Raymond Farm and the first shop in New Hope. She will describe the Krosnick fire replacement project in 1990, with a postscript about the work taking place at the Nakashima workshop under Mira’s direction today.
