Catch the final Modern Architecture Lecture this Monday

04 May

As the semester winds down, so do lecture series on campus. This Monday will bring the close to the wonderful “New Approaches to Modern Architecture” Clarence Ward Spring 2008 Lecture Series, arranged by Prof. John Harwood. The final speaker will be Richard Anderson, speaking on “USA/USSR: Architecture and War.” More on the speaker, from John Harwood:

Richard Anderson is a Ph.D. candidate at Columbia University and a
widely recognized expert on Russian and Soviet architecture. His work
centers on the under-emphasized exchanges–theoretical, historical, and
technological–between Soviet and Western architects from the dawn of
the Revolution to the 1950s. He has co-curated an exhibition at the
Wallach Art Gallery in New York (and co-authored the accompanying
catalogue) entitled “Architecture in Print: Design and Debate in the
Soviet Union, 1919-1935,” and is currently working on several
publications, including a survey book of Russian architecture from 1867
to 1990, to be published by Reaktion Books.
The lecture will be Monday May 5 in Classroom I of the Art Building at 5 PM.
