Remembering Architect Andrew Geller (1924–2011)

The man who designed the kitchen where Nikita Kruschev and President Richard Nixon held their famous “kitchen debate," architect Andrew Geller, has died. Geller, who studied architecture at Cooper Union, designed the kitchen as part of the Leisurama house project while working for iconic designer Raymond Loewy.

Geller was also known for the modernist beach homes he designed for clients on Long Island. Read more on Geller in Mark Lamster’s post on Design Observer.

Geller’s grandson, filmmaker Jake Gorst who lives in Geller’s former Northport home is preserving his grandfather’s architectural legacy. Read more on Gorst’s work.
