This is a big deal.
Antoine Predock has donated his archives, home and studio property to the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. The University’s Center for Southwest Research will manage the archives including detailed models of many of Predock’s architectural projects. His studio and residence will provide studio space and learning opportunities for UNM’s Architectural School students.
The University will raise funds for upgrades and some renovation to the property in Albuquerque.
I’m more of a preservationist than an architect and exist on the periphery of architects and architecture but even I know this is a world-class gift from a world-class architect. Well played, Antoine.
