In conjunction with the “Shofuso and Modernism: Architecture and Design of George Nakashima, Antonin and Noémi Raymond, and Junzo Yoshimura” exhibit at Shofuso – the Japanese House and Garden in Philadelphia, the Raymond Farm Center for Living Arts and Design (RFC) in New Hope will host limited tours on Saturdays from Sept. 26 through Nov. 14.
Presented in one of Yoshimura’s pivotal works, Shofuso (1954), this exhibition features original furniture and textile designs, documentary film, and an installation of newly commissioned photography, to explore this circle’s connections with Japan and the translation of those experiences into design and built architectural work in the Philadelphia region during the middle years of the 20th century.
The exhibition runs until Nov. 29 with a combination of virtual and in-person events.
RFC, nonprofit arts organization based in New Hope at the former studio/home of the designer-architects Noémi and Antonin Raymond, is dedicated to its mission of fostering an intellectual and physical environment that stimulates growth and creativity in the spirit of Noémi and Antonin Raymond.
In addition, RFC works to support the preservation and repurposing of its historic structures for the appreciation and enjoyment of residents, tourists and generations to come. The Raymond Farm Center is an art, design and cultural center with an artist-in-residency program that serves the Bucks County community along with the Greater Philadelphia and New York regions.
