This exhibition explores the complex story behind the only American Japanese architect and landscape architect at Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian community, in Westchester County, New York in 1944. Original correspondence, photographs, and drawings from the Domoto Collection held by the Environmental Design Archives will explore what it meant to be a mid-century American Japanese architect and how Domoto’s life experience and Japanese heritage influenced his work­- illuminating the intersections between race, the designed environment, power, access, and ability.
