Designed in 1963 by Pritzker Prize winning architect Philip Johnson, The Kreeger Museum is an excellent example of Johnson's Classical Modernism filled with paintings and sculptures, a concert/recital hall, and a sculpture terrace overlooking a magnificent pool and colonnade. In addition to the tour, participants will have the opportunity to view correspondence between the architect and his clients, as well as construction drawings, photographs, and the original architectural model completed in Johnson's Park Avenue Manhattan model shop.
After receiving her M.Arch from SCI-Arc, Karol Williams practiced in Philadelphia for over 20 years while concurrently teaching at Drexel University. Since moving to DC, she has taught at the Corcoran College of Art + Design. She recently presented a paper to the Society of Architectural Historians, Latrobe Chapter on the architectural themes of the Kreeger Residence/Museum and the spirited art collection of the Kreegers. Karol gave tours of The Kreeger for AIA/DC Architecture Week 2014 and 2015.
