Born to an American mother and a Japanese father, Isamu Noguchi never felt like he belonged anywhere and spent his life assembling identities through his sculpture, landscape architecture and design.\n\nIn a career spanning more than six decades from the 1920s until his death in 1988, he travelled incessantly, from New York to remote Japanese islands, from Paris to Bangladesh, synthesizing aesthetic values. The result – massive sculptures of interlocking wood, Zen-like gardens of granite and stone slides – is now seen as a powerful artistic link between East and West. He also designed stage sets and a number of lamps and pieces of furniture that are counted among the greatest classics of modern design.
