We're home safe on non-volcanic soil after our jaunt to Honolulu for
the opening of the Vladimir Ossipoff exhibition "Hawaiian Modern." Yesterday we
gave you the party
report and today, we have the Ossi-party photos.
Metropolis' Paul Makovsky with
Ossipoff's granddaughter Keira Alexandra. You heard our
design connection with Alexandra, here's another one:
Metropolis ran a story on Alexandra's amazing
NYC house back in 1998.
Valerie Ossipoff, the architect's
curator, designer and overall Big Kahuna Dean
Raul Barreneche, author of a beautiful book
about tropical modern architecture, aptly named Tropical
Modern, and Susan Sayer Batton, deputy director
of the Honolulu Academy of Art.
