January 26-28: Lead Pencil Studio, Art & Architecture, Seattle

non-signII-cropAnnie Han and Daniel Mihalyo formed Lead Pencil Studio to pursue installation art, site-specific art and functional architecture. They are winners of the 2007 Founder’s Rome Prize in Architecture from the American Academy in Rome, and were recognized in 2006 as an ‘Emerging Voices’ by the Architectural League of New York.

Their practice is self-described as “architecture in reverse…our projects are everything about architecture with none of its function…spaces with no greater purpose than to be perceived and question the certainty posited by the man-made world.
