Rome photography by Balthazar Korab, who collaborated with Zarina on the 1976 book Roofscapes of Rome stretches around the gallery on 40-inch fabric prints. Astra’s work restoring the village of Civita di Bagnoregio is celebrated in the “Astra Zarina Memorial Belvedere” models and drawings by her student Steven Holl. A wall of early projects 1970–1989 shows Steven’s first works upon returning from Rome.
