Join us in New York City for a special closing reception celebrating acclaimed architect and University of Massachusetts Amherst alumnus Patrick Tighe, FAIA, FAAR, and his exhibition 'Re-Drawn', a series of drawings and sculptural architectural models.  The exhibition was previously mounted in only three venues, including the John W. Olver Design Building on the UMass Amherst campus. Partnering again with the UMass Amherst Department of Architecture, Tight shows his exhibition at the UMass NYPOP studio in Chelsea through January 26, 2018. Click here for Directions.

The reception is open to the public. No cost to attend. The reception starts at 6:00 p.m. and will run until 8:00 p.m. 

In a recent article in Interior Design magazine, Tighe describes his inspiration for the exhibition: "'Often the entanglement of architectural legislation and urgency of schedule dilutes the DNA of design," Tighe muses. 'The drawings, collages of digital and analog representations, return to the architectural inception: the idea, the quote, the character or quirk that ignited each project.'"

Patrick Tighe, FAIA, FAAR, is one of Los Angeles' preeminent architects. The highly acclaimed namesake firm, Patrick Tighe Architecture, is committed to creating an authentic, contemporary Architecture informed by technology, sustainability, and building innovation. Since its inception, the firm has produced a strong and diverse body of projects that includes city developed affordable housing, commercial, mixed-use projects, installations and award-winning interiors. 

As an undergraduate, Tighe studied architecture at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. After graduation, he attended the University of California, Los Angeles, where he received his Master of Architecture.
