Chinese Style: Rediscovering the Architecture of Poy Gum Lee, 1923 – 1968 is the culmination of three years of research by architectural historian and exhibition guest curator, Kerri Culhane. The exhibition will examine Poy Gum Lee’s hybrid modernist influence in New York Chinatown through a retrospective of his life’s work in China and the U.S., and a study of his architectural integration of eastern ideas and western technology.

Lee’s compelling body of work reflects a cultural transition period in both China and New York Chinatown. The exhibition features more than 80 artifacts, including photographs, architectural drawings and blueprints for both realized and unrealized projects, and other materials that document and explore Lee’s 50-year long career in the east and west. Though Lee is revered for his work in China, the exhibition is the first major study of his work undertaken in the U.S.
