Biographical notes:

An American theoretical architect, teacher and writer, John Hejduk participated in the New York Five exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1969, and was Dean of the School of Architecture at Cooper Union, New York, from 1975 until shortly before his death in 2000. Hejduk's "Masques," a contemporary version of the 16th and 17th century entertainments, combined architectural sketches and models into highly personalized, poetic and sometimes disturbing allegorical narratives; several of the Masque structures were built during the 1980's in Berlin and Atlanta.
