Frederick Kiesler's Endless House is a true icon of 20th-century visionary architecture. A panel discussion will seek to embed his holistic concept of the single-family home in historical context and to reexamine its reception and its potential for contemporary art and architecture. The discussion will be followed by the book launch of Endless Kiesler, a publication of many previously unpublished drawings, plans, and photographs, along with recent reflections on Kiesler's central project.
