Annabelle Selldorf established her practice in New York in 1988, and has acquired an international reputation for work that is sensitive to context, thoughtful in execution, and timeless. Her designs garner high praise for their subtlety and melding of Modernism with exquisite- but not precious- detail. Her current project, the Sunset Park Material Recycling Facility, is eagerly anticipated by critics and community members alike. Join Annabelle and Bill Moggridge as they discuss Selldorf’s career and process in the 2012 Bill’s Design Talks series.
