George Nakashima was born in Spokane, Washington in 1905 and grew up in the forests of the Olympic Peninsula. His graduate work was at MIT in 1930, as well as the Prix Fontainebleau from L’Ecole Americaine des Beaux Arts in France in 1928. He spent considerable time in Paris, traveling around the world until he secured a job at the Antonin Raymond office in Tokyo, then sending the learned architect to Pondicherry, India, where he was the onsite architect for the first reinforced concrete building in that country and became one of the first disciples of Sri Aurobindo.
This Nakashima free edge is a proud staple at APF Munn, and is often specified and reconfigured by the many talented designers and architects in hospitality and residential.
