Michael Kalil oral history project 2011

Collection, PC070105


The Michael Kalil Oral History Project consists of recorded sound interviews with colleagues, collaborators, and friends of interior designer Michael Kalil (1943-1991). Jean Gardner, Karyn Issa Ginsberg, and Marty Speigel discuss Kalil's education, career, and ideas with project archivist Jennifer Larson. Kalil's work—incorporating varied and diverse principles of architecture and philosophy—was considered by many to be revolutionary in the 1970s and 1980s. Recordings are all in English.
