About the Exhibitors:

Olson Kundig: A Retrospective

Olson Kundig Architects was founded on some simple ideas: that buildings can serve as a bridge between nature, culture and people, and that inspiring surroundings have a positive effect on people’s lives. The firm’s work includes museums, commercial design, academic buildings, exhibit design, interior design, places of worship and residences, across five continents. The office combines the capacity of a large firm with the intensity of a small one through a vigorous sense of commitment to every project.

Cedric Hartman – Selected Works 2015

Cedric Hartman is an American artist, inventor and designer. He is known for thoughtful, idiosyncratic work in architecture – including interior spatial layout, and his continuously evolving array of furniture, lighting and hardware pieces. His eponymous 15-person organization uses highest quality materials to produce small editions of his works for a world clientele of curators, architects, interior designers and decorators. Born in Lincoln, Nebraska in 1929, Hartman still works every day at his studio workshop in Omaha, Nebraska.

Wallace Cunningham: Reality Less Than an Idea

Wallace Cunningham has gained international recognition as a leader in architectural, landscape and interior design whose work celebrates place, communicates purpose, elicits emotion and generates a timeless image. Cunningham’s design philosophy emphasizes the surrounding environment as a primary source of inspiration.

TRUCK-A-TECTURE will be on display at KANEKO from June 27 – August 23.


Truck-A-Tecture examines architecture as redefined by mobility and technical expansion. This exhibition will generate a unique conversation and offer a new perspective on modern housing. A mash-up of popular and elite cultures, Truck-A-Tecture will transcend the current definitions of “pre-fab” and “mobile architecture.”

Participating architecture firms:
 Jones Partners, Architects – Los Angeles, CA
Mark Mack Architects – Venice, CA
Min|Day – San Francisco, CA / Omaha, NE
Office of Mobile Design – Venice, CA
