Award winning architect Frederick Fisher (principal, Frederick Fisher and Partners) opens his first solo show in Los Angeles. Entitled, Thinking by Hand, the exhibition features gem-like watercolors which examine the form-making processes and composition strategies that Fisher employs when envisioning potential architectural commissions. Evoking the architect's studio, the salon-like installation presents a compendium of both new and current projects as well as significant commissions from the architect's twenty-nine year career.

Recognized for his prominent civic projects like the Annenberg Beach House in Santa Monica and PS1 in New York; Fisher's recent Fellowship at the American Academy in Rome resulted in the development of a speculative proposal entitled Imaginary Museums, which will be presented for the first time in digital renderings to accompany the exhibition of original watercolors. Together they further illustrate Fisher's innovative design processes. Los Angeles Times Art Critic Christopher Hawthorne noted in regard to Fisher's recent work, "It is not simply the precision of [his] forms ... It is what those forms frame, acknowledge and make room for".
