Paolo views exhibition space with the head of the museums curatorial department, Cathy Frankel, and architect Susan Piedmont-Palladino, who is a curator at the museum.

Paolo was invited to critique design projects of a group of young students at the museum,
and presented his SOLARE design idea to this same student group.


? The expected crowd of about 250 people swelled to 600 people for Soleri’s Powerpoint presentation, and many people lined up after the lecture to have their Soleri books signed.

Architect Susan Piedmont-Palladino and husband and architect Douglas visited Soleri Archives last week to view Paolo Soleri original work and discuss the scope and theme of a possible exhibition at the National Design Museum in 2008.
