anne griswold tyng

Rarely do we hear about women architects, yet there are many who have done such influential, innovative work. Anne Griswold Tyng studied under Gropius and Breuer, worked at Louis Kahn's office (whom she also had an affair with) and did some amazing geometric, Bauhaus-influenced design in Philadelphia where she lived. I love this fireplace, such an interesting example of old architecture translated into modern design.
